I also use Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses and toss in some of my favorite pizza toppings. Kids love it, and best of all, it only takes 10 minutes to prepare. —Kerrie deVay, New Orleans, Louisiana

"This was really good and also an easy base recipe to tweak as you see fit. I cut it in half for just the two of us, and it was plenty. I also added extra cheese on top. Next time I will add in some green peppers. The only problem I really had was that the edges of some noodles were still a bit crunchy. I might try to keep it in longer next time or put in some extra tomato sauce or something. We'll be making this one again."

"This was really good! I cooked my pasta first and then baked it for a shorter amount of time."

"We love it. Husband said I could make it anytime. Didn't use the multigrain bow pasta though."
