      This is a very rich pasta casserole - be warned and I feel needs a spicy home made pasta sauce. Certainly a commercial one will not do it justice. Also, it is very cheesy (fine with us) but maybe go on the lighter side first try.
      We like this sort or casserole but in small servings.

      This is quick and delicious! Used half ricotta and half cottage cheese and used low-fat mozzarella cheese. Added a bit more pepper flakes to spice it up. Thanks Lainey!

      This is great! I added a bit more cheese (the more cheese the better!), and used italian seasoning rather than parsley (because I didn't have plain parsley!). My son loved it -- kept saying "more please mommy!" That is the true sign of a keeper recipe :)
