I used a large deep pie dish to assemble the recipe for the oven. This makes a lot & in my family of 3 was served for a second night. The presentation looks very nice cut & I served it with a salad. Would be a great addition to the buffet table or having guests for lunch.
Mmmmm! This is soooo good! (I love writing my reviews while I am still eating the recipe!) The spices in this are well balanced with the cheeses, tomatoes and noodles. I made this using spicy Italian sausage, which for me proved to be just right. I also used provolone cheese in place of the mozzarella which worked perfectly. Otherwise, I followed Kitten's directions for the perfect dish : ) Kittencal is right, this one is a must try! Thanks, Kittencal, for another great recipe!
