You can make this recipe with leftover noodles or freshly cooked. You can add broiled or grilled shrimp, scallops or chicken. I cut this out of a magazine, but can't tell which one it was from.

I got 3 small servings which was perfect because we ate garlic bread with it. I used dried parsley instead of fresh. That's the only thing I changed. So easy to do. I had cooked spaghetti of yesterday that I plunged in boiling water for just a few minutes. So that was really quick to do. Thanks Diner :) Made for Holiday tag game

My kids love this for a light lunch and they have it often! I think it is one of their favorite things in the whole world, because every time you ask them what they want they say pasta and cheese please!

In a pinch this saved dinner one evening. Thank you! I did use skim milk and it worked pretty well. I know the half and half (even fat free) would have been richer and tastier. Would double next time for a family of 4.
