Mostaccioli Recipe

Publisher Photo
Even though we're not Italian, this rich, cheesy pasta dish is a "family tradition" for holidays and special occasions. I was delighted the first time I tried this mostaccioli recipe—it has all the flavor of lasagna without the work of layering the ingredients. Try it…I'm sure it'll become one of your family's favorites, too! —Nancy Mundhenke, Kinsley, Kansas

I loved how easy it was to put together. The flavor truly was like having lasagna without all the prep. I used a good bulk italian sausage which I think was the magic ingredient. Next time I think I'll try sprinkling mozzerella cheese on top too!

Did perfect at my potluck party at work... It wasn't hard to clean the dish when there wasn't anything left in it by end of the lunch!
