Before getting on with the review I would like to say, I'm very pleased to be the first one to rate this recipe.:)I was looking for a basic M & C recipe and this one seemed to meet that requirement.So, I made this almost as it was written,after draining the pasta, I just used the same pot for making the sauce( saves on washing another pan:)).Before baking, I did add some cheese to the top.It was baked as directed for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.It's a very good M & C, which went very well with Meatloaf and Italian Green Beans. Thank you for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
