Top Review by CarrolJ

This baked pasta dish is wonderful! I used macaroni because it was what I had on hand! I was worried about putting the red pepper flakes in this because I thought it would be too spicey. Wrong!!! This is very very tasty and full of flavor. Thanks Elizardbeth for a new pasta dish for our family! Made for PAC Fall 2009.
