This was my mother-in-law's recipe. It makes 6-8 servings. I like shells or bow ties and italian seasoning the best, but you can use any kind of pasta, and any kind of seasoning. This is always a warm our tummy type of recipe. She called it "fried noodles" but I thought this name would confuse readers.

Hey, great work Joanne. This is really tasty. I made it just the way you directed, except I put in fat free mozzarella. Still tasted great! Served it with lima beans and mushroom salad, recipe #51793. I used portobello mushrooms in the salad. Wowsers!
