Cheesey, delicious, and it doesn't get much easier to make than this! I had to bake mine an extra 10 minutes (covered) to get the pasta a bit more tender. You could easily add some browned meat to this, if desired. We enjoyed this very much and we'll have this again. Thanx for an easy, family-pleasing recipe.
