This is a great one-dish meal that my family loves. It's also a good way to use up broken lasagne noodles. I clipped this from a magazine some time ago, I forgot which one.

Actually found this one on the pillsbury website as it used progresso breadcrumbs. Anyway I thought it sounded like the perfect thing to make for company, and it was! Very easy and really tasty. What I loved most was the presentation, it looks beautiful when plated. Served with a salad and garlic bread..yum!

Made this days ago and Dh is still talking about it. He tells everyone it was just like tke meals he would have at the mom-and-pop, six table Italian restaurants he used to frequent many years ago. I used straight olive oil and whole wheat penne but otherwise followed the recipe. We loved it.
