"Delicious! I didn't have noodles, so subbed 1 1/2 cups bow tie pasta. We loved this pasta in the dish, and I'll probably always use the bow ties. The only other change was to use 4 oz Parmesan cheese rather than 3/4 cup (6 oz)--I had some good imported stuff. The sauce is pretty thick, so if you like a looser sauce thin it with milk. I'll definitely make this again."
