MY REVIEW

Pretty good recipe to use for potlucks. Easy to make. Pasta does go in uncooked and comes out just fine. I used the spiral pasta.

Quick, easy and great for weeknights. I make this up in the morning and when I get home I just pop it in the oven.

Newmarket, yes, the pasta goes in uncooked.

This was so good and so easy. I added some pizza seasoning to it and used mozzarella cheese since that is all I had. It was super good!!

I have a question, do you put the pasta in uncooked?? And if so, does it cook thoroughly in 30 minutes?
