Great casserole. Made this for dinner tonight and I prepared the sauce earlier in the day and refrigerated it until time to boil the pasta and bake it off. Next time I will add both mushrooms and artichoke hearts as we love them and they pair well together. All you need to serve with this casserole is a nice crisp salad. Made for Fall PAC, 2012.
Wonderful recipe. It takes a bit of time but it's worth it. Great flavors. I made half the recipe and used a 8x8 dish. It was full. I didn't add the oil in the pasta. I used only white mushrooms, no dried porcini. I used bay leaf, it gave a great taste. I only had cheddar cheese so I used that. Thanks muncheechee :) Made for PAC Spring 2012
Excellent! I made the variation with the artichokes and loved it. This completely filled a 9x13 to the brim. The only problem I had was I couldn't find frozen artichokes, so I used canned, which I rinsed and patted dry, then chopped. Next time, I will split it between two 8x8 pans. I will definitely make this again.
