Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I am really lazy...I serve it straight from the broiling....YUMMM!!

This is VERY easy to make, but I personally think it needs 2 cups pasta. This came out runny, albeit TASTY! The extra pasta would hold the liquid better and make it more casserole-y. It IS a very good recipe otherwise.

The extra pasta is off-limits for most diabetics, whom this site is intended to serve. Appreciate your advice, but please "read the room" before commenting.

yummy! Can't go wrong with these ingredients though

Delicious, quick and easy
