I had some leftover veggies that I wanted to do something different with them and remembered this recipe.Since the leftover veggies included broccoli,a can of broccoli cheese soup was used instead of the Cream of Asparagus.And for the pasta,mini penne was used.My SO and I both thought it was a very good side dish. So good in fact, that it will be made again. Thanks for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "

Ha ha, good, and simple! my daughters were going out, so this was a fast and warming supper to throw together quickly! I sauteed an onion and some zucchini to add to the unbaked casserole, simply because we like onion and the zucchini needed to be used. I used the rest of a bag of multi-coloured shells, which wasn't quite enough, so I topped it up with some wholewheat fusilli. I used frozen peas and corn, and a tin of mushroom soup. I took Juliets mums advice about the breadcubes! I usually make my pasta casseroles more creamy, and so another time might add some cream or milk to the casserole, but actually, this was really very good as is, so why add the extra calories! Thanks Juliet, made for PAC Spring 2009

When I made this for my family, I sometimes put 2 or 3 slices of buttered bread cut into small pieces on top and then sprinkeled on the cheese. Just made it go that bit further.

Yum! I wasn't well enough to go to town today and get some groceries so I only had pantry and freezer items. This recipe was perfect, it filled my family's tummies up and was quick enough to make without fussing in the kitchen for too long. Thank you Juliet from SA

You're right, Juliet, it isn't haute cuisine, but it is, indeed, down home good. Used cream of mushroom soup as I didn't have any asparagus. Used frozen Asian veggies and Monterey Jack cheese. Yum. Lends itself well to just about any variation. Thnx for posting.

This was good comfort food! I just added some salt and pepper to taste and will have it again. Thanks for sharing!
