    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    I have made this for over 25 years and is exceptionally good and easy. It is delicious with a tossed salad and crusty garlic bread. It is not your traditional pasta and sauce, but an elegant one-dish meal. You can prepare it in the morning and it is all ready for the evening meal.

      I've also made this recipe for 20 some odd years, got it from the Forum Feasts cookbook, and my mom was making it for years before that! To prevent drying, you really need to drizzle melted butter over the top. With all the butter and cheeses it's not lowfat, so I don't make it alot, but it IS a crowd pleaser!! Thanks for posting it because I lost my copy of the book in our most recent move!

      I have been making this for a few years now. I do top it with a blend of italian cheeses. It reheats great for leftovers and you can substitute all the cheese filling mixture with low fat or non fat and you can not even tell the difference. I also have made it with whole wheat pasta and it is great...really!!
