Garlic, basil and oregano add pizzazz to this savory side dish. The pasta is tender and moist, and there's plenty of cheese flavor. I like to serve it alongside steaks or chicken. -Dawn Dhooghe Concord, North Carolina

"This is a favorite side dish with a grilled meat at our table. Do not overcook the pasta!"

"This makes a great meatless main dish, too, and is easily doubled. I bake it in individual gratin dishes and serve it with garlic bread and a green salad."
