This was an unexpectedly absolutely delicious dish! I was visiting family made it on a spur of the moment thought for a day after Thanksgiving dinner. I shared it with family and they raved about it and asked me for the website and saved it in their electronic devices! Tasted good for a few days! It was such of an attractive dish that I posted a photo of it here.
This casserole was absolutely yummy! We had three dinners out of it, as well as two lunches for me. I thought it would be a little on the soupy side due to all the liquid in the sauce, but it all absorbed into the pasta while baking so the texture was just perfect. I love the addition of the kalamata olives. Thanks for sharing!
This was the best baked pasta I have EVER made... really the best I've ever had ! I used penne pasta and chicken... didn't have tomatoes either, but those olives make the dish. Thanks for sharing... will definitely be a weekly dish; easy to make on a Sunday afternoon and throw in the oven later on that week:)
My husband and parents loved this dish. I used sweet Italian sausage rather than hot but otherwise followed the recipe as written. The kalamata olives lent a salty taste to the dish but no one complained.
