My mother shared this recipe with me soon after I was married. Most everything I know about cooking, I learned from her. This recipe has always been a family favorite, and it's a time-saver as well because it uses spaghetti sauce and gravy mix.—Christina Takacs, West Springfield, Massachusetts

"Good flavor, but does not hold well. Eat right away! My family was late to dinner and the noodles became a mushy mess."

"I used organic heavy whipping cream, Brown rice Fusilli and both Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese. Also added some fresh organic baby spinach to it. Very good!"

"My ten-year-old niece really loved this dish. We agree that it tastes like lasagna, but so much easier to prepare. I didn't have cream, so I used regular milk and I didn't have parmesan, so I used mozzarella instead. It was very good, even so. I will definitely be making this again."
