So rich and creamy, this pasta dish is wonderfully cheesy and delicious! And for time-saving convenience, I like to assemble it the night before, then bake it the next day. —Susie Sizemore, Collinsville, Virginia

"This was WONDERFUL. It tasted like something you'd get from a very popular pasta restaurant. I cut this in half for just my husband and I, and served it with garlic knots. Because I had cut it in half, it seemed about ready in 20 minutes. I put the cheese on and baked it for about another 5-6 minutes. This was so tasty, I can't wait to make this again!"

"Great pasta dinner! Made this last minute so didn't bake in oven. Straight from stove it was excellent! Used spicy Italian sausage. As a volunteer food editor with Taste of Home I enjoy preparing dishes that can be easily adjusted to my family's busy schedule."

"Pretty good dish and my hubby really liked it! Thought it was a tad on the rich side, probably from the cream cheese and creamed spinach. Would definitely make again though!"

"This is a keeper. I used mild sausage this time but will try medium next time for a little more flavor. I think this would also be good using ground beef or shrimp."
