      Excellent, tasty. Makes a HUGE amount. Used as a side, it served 3 people 3 meals, but it reheats very well in the microwave. It's great with fish. More cheese is definitely better. Chia, thanks for posting.

      Very delicious and easy, and a nice alternative to the usual side dishes. I doubled the recipe but only used about 1 1/2 times the amount of pasta--I cooked a double portion but it seemed like too much when it was time to mix it all together.
