- Add the remaining noodles and top with the remaining meat sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake in a pre-heated 350-F degree oven for about 30 minutes.

This was quite good, my DH stated it would great in the winter and he is right. Still tasted great in 90 degree weather. It has a nice flavor, next however I will add more sauce or maybe cut back on the linguini noodles. Didn't know how much linguini to make and maybe made too much. Made for ZWT4.
Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 - Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! This certainly is comfort food.... the weather has suddenly become cold & wet here in the UK & this bake was the prefect thing to warm us up & cheer us up too! I halved the recipe & added some fresh herbs from the garden - delicious! Thanks Verna for a great recipe :)
