Excellent casserole, and total comfort food! I used bacon and increased the mozza cheese, I usually have to add in other ingredients when I make different recipes, this one really did not need any changes... since my family enjoys pasta casseroles, this was a huge sucsess, and one that I will make again, thanks Christa!...Kittencal:)
This was sooo tasty! I stuffed part of this into a turkey breast for 'Sunday Dinner' and put the rest into a glass casserole dish. I wasn't paying as much attention to the recipe as I should have and overcooked the pasta a little bit. I was worried but I don't think it effected the outcome at all. This is a really great recipe. It's easy to follow and tastes awesome both cooked in the bird and on its own. The only other thing I did a little differently was to start browning the pancetta first then threw the veggies in to cook. I also didn't *really* measure the parmesean, but I'm sure it was close to a cup. It makes ALOT which is good b/c I was looking forward to leftovers.
Absolutely perfect - I wouldn't change a thing. My guests are still talking about this dish!! Thank you queenkungfu!!
