    This literally took 5 minutes to put together! The mascarapone gave it a wonderful richness that helped a little go a long way. Still, we must be pigs or something, because I can't imagine this feeding 6 people - it's more like 4, in my opinion. I uncovered the dish at the end to get some color on the cheese. Really delicious!

    So easy and good!! Made a serving for 2 and there was plenty for DH and I. I used a combo of Trader Joe's marinara sauce and canned tomato sauce and tomato paste. Will be making this again!! Made for 2012 Spring PAC.

    I believe this is Giada de Laurentis' recipe. It is exactly the same word for word except she uses sliced smoked mozzarella on the top instead of shredded italian cheese. I love this pasta and actually searched this out to post it. I used a very sliced Meunster cheese on the top and otherwise bake as written. The marcarpone gives a nice depth to the sauce. My husband raves over it.

    Cheesey good, and tasty, too! I'm sure that I used more cheese than written, but that's my usual. ;) For the Italian cheese, I used a combo of mozzarella, parmesan, and asiago. I uncovered it at the end of baking to brown the top just a bit. Everyone loved this and I'll make this again. Thanx for posting.
