I spent 14 years preparing meals in restaurants, but now I just cook to entertain family and friends. I've always liked the versatility of pasta. This cheesy vegetable noodle dish is one of my grandmother's favorites, so I make it often when we get together. —Karrie Fimbres Sparks, Nevada

"This is a great dinner. My 6 year old didn't ask how many bites she ate everything on her plate. I also want to say thank you for making the sauce. I won't use a recipe that calls for any cream soup."

"We loved this.....full of vegetables, and the creamy sauce is so good. With the cheese and milk, you get enough protein that you don't need meat, although we did have it with baked chicken, (to satisfy a son who is offended if anything suggests a vegetarian meal). We all thought this was delicious, and it will now be a stand-by I'll make often!"
