Facebook fans of my blog, Chef in Training, inspired me to make this creamy pasta casserole out of ingredients I had on hand. Success! I took the dish for another flavorful spin and added a bit of smoky bacon and toasted bread crumbs. —Nikki Barton, Providence, Utah

"Very good and easy. I didn't have 2 cups of heavy cream so I used 1 cup of 2% milk tasted great!"

"I really liked this family thought it was just okay. I did omit the bacon and added a little extra ham just to keep the flavors a little more traditional and eliminated the bread crumbs because my family doesn't care for crumb toppings on casseroles."

"I made this casserole and doubled it to feed 12 people. Nothing was left in the pans after the meal. Everyone raved about it! I was actually disappointed that there were no leftovers. I made it exactly as printed, except I used half and half instead of heavy whipping cream, and to save time I used frozen cooked grilled chicken strips, and instead of cooking bacon, I used a jar of Real Bacon Bits. No one knew the difference and it was delicious! This recipe is a keeper."
