      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.

      This was soooo good! I used Classico with Sweet Basil for the sauce, zitoni pasta (roomie got the wrong one), grated parmesan, and added mild italian sausage and a clove of garlic. It was very easy to make and we pigged out! No worries about whether to make it again because it was a big hit!! Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
