    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 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...

      This was a great and simple family meal. Even my picky 4 y.o. loved it. I did add a little more sun dried tomatoes than the recipe calls for because I love them and used Italian-flavored diced tomatoes WITH all the juice. I also sliced up some kalamata olives I had on hand and mixed in some extra parmesan with the ricotta. This will definitely become a regular dish in our house.
