I made this from a Better Homes and Gardens and was happy to see it posted here already. This is very good. Very tasty and easy to make for a busy weeknight meal. Served with rolls and a salad. The only downside for me was that it is very rich with all the cheese on top. The pasta, meatballs and cheese baked together make warm bites of comfort food. Thanks for posting! Enjoy! ChefDLH
