Delicious! This recipe was very easy to prepare & very filling. My husband HATES leftovers but took this casserole in his lunch for 3 days after I made it!! I used meatless spaghetti sauce & turkey sausage. I had to use ziti because I didn't have any spaghetti on hand & after 30 minutes, it seemed like the pasta was drying out. So, I poured some plain tomato sauce on the casserole & sprinkled with a mixture of cheddar & mozzarella for the last 15 minutes of baking time.
