You probably have everything you need to make this pasta dish in your pantry right now. This can be made ahead of time and baked when you are ready. I love these kind of dishes. The pasta was really creamy and wonderful! We both absolutely loved it. It was even better the next day at lunch. This will be going into our usual dinner rotation!
