I love this recipe. I have made it twice for now lunch. I did not want to use rosemary, but I did anyhow and it is a wonderful with the cayenne. I used pre-bought italian bread crumbs and they worked well. Thanks for the new flavor.

I made this when I realized at the last moment that I needed to take a potluck dish to a meeting. I found the noodles in the cabinet, did a search, and found this recipe. This is so simple and nice, with things I have in my cabinet. No need to buy the packs with all the chemicals when I can make this!

Bev I give you full marks for an attractive tasty noodle dish hat I thoroughly enjoyed. The Rosemary complimented the cheese. I followed the recipe ingredients but altered the steps abit. Boiled the noodles in the AM did the crumbs, set aside Then did the,butter rosemary step mixed the noodles with the rosemary, put in casserole dish, added the cheese, covered and refrigerated. I kept the crumbs aside. 30 minutes before serving I popped the noodles covered in the oven for about 18 minutes, opened up the casserole topped with the crumbs and gave them a final browning so they crunched & served. Loved it Thanks Bev
