I found this recipe over at and fell in love with it. It's SO easy! I sometimes add a little italian sausage and some garlic.

You can't beat this for ease of preparation. All the cheese gets evenly distributed, as well as the sauce, so every mouthful is just right! I ended up using rigatoni, which worked out well and a combination of romano and parmesan. After 45 minutes, I removed the foil and, while the cheese on top was nicely melted, it wasn't very brown. After 5 more minutes in the oven, uncovered, I decided to run it under the broiler for a couple of minutes. Delish! Made for Spring PAC 2010.
