I made this last night. I used Ricotta cheese, & a wee bit of sour cream to use it up. I added 1 10oz can of mushrooms as my sauce did not contain any. I only used 1 egg. It was excellent. we really enjoyed it, I think it was the best pasta bake I have ever made. I loved the crumby topping!

This is a delicious pasta dish! I altered the meat sauce a little bit and added a bit more cheese but the outcome was fantastic! Another keeper recipe! Thanks!
