Lamb Pasta Casserole

Recipe by ellie_

We enjoyed this simple pasta casserole that's a great way to use up some leftover ricotta cheese and other things we usually have on hand. I think this would also work well using ground beef. Adapted from Bon Appetit (June 1981)

YUM! I made this last night and my 9 yr old inhaled it. Super easy to make and I liked the addition of ricotta. A bit mild for my taste but still very good. Thanks for posting.
