The pasta was perfectly cooked, BUT, it absorbed all of the liquid, leaving no sauce. I added an additional, small can of tomato sauce on top just before serving, which helped a little...but I still wish it were saucier, like Chef Boyardee. It needs salt, too. Also, the recipe calls for a "medium-sized casserole dish," which I took to mean a 2-quart rectangle dish, but I think actually means a 9x13-inch dish. It tastes SORT OF similar to Chef Boyardee, but not enough to be named after it. Anyway, I won't make this again, but I'm glad to have at least tried it.
