A great kid and adult friendly recipe. My 1 year old ate his little heart out. I did forget to put the cheese on top, but I honestly didn't miss it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Very very simple pasta dish for a busy week night dinner. I served this with a salad. Hubby and kids really enjoyed this. I doubled this recipe, and put the other half in a 13x9 foil utility pan and covered it tightly with heavy duty aluminum foil to put in the freezer for another time. All I will have to do is take it out, let it thaw, and throw it in the oven to bake.

I made this years ago many times as written, but had not made it in awhile. This time I used 1 lb of Italian sausage and a 1/2 lb lean beef. I then used Newman's Own Sockarooni sauce. Other than that, no changes. Everyone loved it!
