This is just a basic noodle casserole. If you do not want to finish it in the oven omit the fried onions, return the mixture from the bowl to the frypan and finish reheating it, then serve from the pan and sprinkle parmesan on at the table You can also sprinkle crushed potato chips at the table. I find the fried onions need some heating through so do not recommend using them unless you finish the dish in the oven
