  • Topping

  • 3 ounces bacon bits
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup French-fried onions

Directions

  1. 1. Cook pasta (I prefer egg noodles or spiral pasta) to Al Dente and drain.
  2. 2. Saute Celery & onion in butter or olive oil 3-4 minutes.
  3. 3. Place pasta in greased casserole dish. Pour mixture over top and.
  4. very gently stir into pasta until mixed well.
  5. 4. Cover loosely with foil and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
  6. 5. Spread bacon bits, shredded cheese, and french fried onions on top. Cook an additional 5 minutes, uncovered.
  7. ** I usually cook this in a deep 9 x 9 casserole dish. If using something larger, you probably want to change the initial bake time to 20 minutes (or less - until it's bubbly).
