      This is DELICIOUS! I really thought it would take quite long to make, but it actually took much less time than I thought it would. The cheese sauce is very tasty, and the entire family enjoyed it. Next time I will add extra seasonings for our own preference. Breezytoo sent some Halloween pasta that was shaped like jackolanterns, black cats, and bats, and witches. The sauce was a gorgeous orange color and the pasta was perfect for an early Halloween treat for the kids. I used 96% lean ground beef, and I felt great feeding a healthy dish to my family. Thanks for a great pasta dish!

      I originally picked this for a tag game and then realized I had made the wrong tag, but decided to make this anyway. All I can say is yummy :yummy: I was a little leary about mixing pasta sauce with cheese sauce, but the flavor is fantastic. It makes a lot and I can see that I'll be using this quite often when we have company because it easy and economical! It's also a great make ahead dish as I made it one day and put it in the oven the next day before dinner and served it with a salad and presto dinner was done! Thanks Redsie for posting this!
