Recipe by Laura36
A friend gave me a copy of this recipe. I just tried it for the first time tonight. I baked it for 45 minutes and forgot to check on the progress in the oven.....half of the cheese burned! So take the baking time with a grain of salt. I would closely watch, or cover it loosely with foil partially through the baking time. We thought this was a wonderful way to have a cheesy saucy pasta dish but still be able to watch our weight! I haven't tweaked this yet or verified the points calculation - but who can resist sharing another WW recipe! 6 WW points per serving.
