Awesome! I get requests for this recipe from my coworkers whenever there is a gathering! However, I do cook the pasta prior to baking.

I have made this many times and have enjoyed it with friends and family. I only changed the ingredients slightly to lower the fat content. I used turkey sausage and whole grain pasta. YUM!
