    spatchcock's Note:

    I love this recipe for busy nights, or at the end of a stressful day when we want easy comfort food. This is easy, but not cheap-tasting and is healthy. I use whole-wheat penne for the pasta, so I usually use a bit more tomato juice since whole-wheat pasta tends to need more liquid.

      I picked this recipe because I had some ricotta cheese frozen and wanted to use it up! I found this recipe a little on the dry side and lacked in the taste department. If I was to do this one again, I would add 3 - 4 garlic...increase on the paprika...add more salt and pepper....add hot sauce. I had 1 cup of ricotta cheese, so added all of it! Seasoned the pasta with olive oil, little salt and pepper. I added 4 large mushrooms, chopped, but could have added more (8) as they did cook down. The only bonus I would give this recipe was that my 2 year old grand son loved it. The adults thought it was a little on the dry side. If I was to do this one again, once the casserole is assembled, I would add some more liquid of some sort, check the seasoning and add more parmesan cheese!

      I wouldn't say it's super fast, but it is easy and tastes good. I didn't have parmesan (oops) so I used an Italian breadcrumb & parmesan mix for the topping. I split it into two smaller casseroles - one for the freezer and one for dinner, each serves two. Next time I'll have to try adding kalamata olives, that sounds good!

      I really like the taste considering the simple prep. I agree with the author...low cost, healthy, and pretty quick. Thanks...
