      I'm giving this a five not because it is gourmet cuisine or anything, but because my pantry has a lot more space now and the results of this dish, as DH put it were "very addictive". I was short on noodles, so I used the noodles from 2 boxes of mac and cheese and it seemed to be the perfect amount! I WILL be making this again!

      I have a mazetti recipe of my own but decided to try this one as it called for different ingredients than mine. This recipe was VERY GOOD, but I still prefer my own which is posted here on recipe*zarr along with another chef's version. I will keep this recipe in my recipe box as hubby likes this one as well as mine.....and it will be nice to have a different flavor in mazetti once in awhile. I prepared this as written but did use the tri-colored pasta as I thought the picture was so pretty and yummy looking.

      Okay first all my substitutions: Halved the recipe for Hubby and me, used 6 button mushrooms sliced and sauted with the onion and garlic instead of canned mushrooms, used 8 ounces tri-coloured twisty pasta instead of cappelletti or elbow macaroni (I've only ever seen straight macaroni here), half a can of weight watcher's tomato soup, and I used half of a 200g can of chopped tomatoes. This is a very nice, filling dish - there wasn't a need for bread on the side for us! I baked it in an 8x8inch pan since I don't have a 3 qt casserole dish. The cheese wasn't too thick which was nice. The sweetness of the corn pairs nicely with the acidicity of the canned tomatoes.
