This was the best thing we ate last week.  It was quick and delicious!!  I saw a version of this on Pinterest.  It looked so good that I had to add it to the menu ASAP!

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 kinds 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!

  1. Fantastic!

    One thing – I'd let the cream cheese sit out a bit before mixing. That was harder than I thought it would be.

  2. It's in the oven right now and has 20 min left to bake. I used sausage, added some onion, and sprinkled with mozzarella cheese that I had on hand. I'm going to make a slice of Texas toast and a little dinner salad to go with it.

    It rained today and it's cold (for southern California!)… so it's nice, warm comfort food…

  3. I'm making this with some sausage I have to use up… and some Mexican cheese that's in the fridge right now. YUMMY!

  4. We have this often in our house and I use it as a way to use up bits and bobs of everything. I just call it Pasta Bake. Oddly, there is never any leftovers from it.
