Quick to make. Very easy recipe. We loved this! I made the whole recipe and put the left-over half in the freezer for another time. It tasted great! Thanks Junebug, this is a keeper!

Easy, delicious and filling. What more can you ask for! I followed the directions exactly and it turned out wonderful...nice, cheesy taste. Next time I may add mushrooms and green peppers for some variation. Thanks for a great recipe!

My entire family loved this recipe!!!! My husband asked what the difference was between this and lasagne...I replied about 2 hours or more of work and a lot more ingredients! This was so easy and delicious! Thanks for sharing!!!!

Update: This has become my favorite go-to Pasta Bake. Yesterday I made up batch quickly during lunch and heated it up for dinner for our three teenage boys, since my husband and I wouldn't be home for dinner. In their words, they "demolished" it.

I added one pound of sausage to the sauce. Also only had one cup of ricotta. Family LOVED it.

This was great! I added some defrosted frozen spinach to the ricotta mixture, so it became like a spinach lasagna (but soooooo much easier!!!) Thanks so much for a fabulous recipe that will be repeated MANY times in our house.

I made this and put it into two loaf pans for the freezer. I did add a ton of garlic with the cheese filling but otherwise stuck to the simple recipe. Tastes great!

I mixed in 1 cup Parmesan cheese with the Mozzarella, as we love it. Other than that followed the recipe with good results. Tasty and quick to throw together during the busy week! I will add spices in the sauce next time too for more flavor.

This was a breeze to put together. I added garlic, minced onion and bell pepper to the ricotta mixture. I would double the pasta next time. I used whole wheat pasta and won't do that again. The texture was all wrong. I used a canned sauce and bet it would be so good with homemade sauce.Thanks for posting.

I love the simplicity of this recipe! I love the fact that I can come home after work and make it and it doesn't take too much time at all. My family will sometimes ask me to add Italian sausage to this recipe for a quick change. Rather than getting ground sausage, i use regular sausages, i cook them then cut them up and add them as a separate layer under the noodles. Love this recipe!
