"Great, quick recipe! Out of necessity, we replaced parmesan with motzerella cheese. For hungry teenagers, more cheese the better! As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I enjoy recipes that provide great taste and use simple ingredients on hand."

"I think I would use rice instead of the pasta. I used rotel, only 1 can and I found it to be spicy for the kids. Maybe add some red beans w/it too."
