I've made this for friends and they love it. My husband eats it also. It is easy to make with an easy clean up which I love.
I loved this and was able to freeze it for another night.
When an Italian dinner is on the menu, there’s never an empty seat at the dinner table. Dishes like Italian Mac and Cheese and Spaghetti Pie offer a little twist, and the best of both worlds. Ciao!
