Everyday Southern Living tweets a dinner idea. A few days ago they tweeted about a Three Cheese Pasta Bake for dinner. I checked out the recipe and thought it sounded fantastic!  I decided to give it a try – with a few changes. 

The original recipe used ziti.  I didn’t have any ziti; I only had elbow macaroni.  I went with the elbow macaroni and it was fine.  I also added chicken to make this more of a meal than a side dish.  This was SO good!  It was even good reheated the next day for lunch.  If you don’t like ricotta, try substituting cottage cheese.  I halved the recipe below and it was enough for at least 4 or 5 people.

  1. Made this tonight .. I didn't love the texture. I would've preferred more creamy, but mine chunked up. Leaving out the eggs might have helped?

  2. Oh heavens. Seriously, I would stand hunched over the stove and eat this directly out of the casserole dish. My family LOVED it!

  3. I just made this for dinner tonight and it is delicious and very east to make! I had some Hawaiian bread on the side to make the meal complete!

  4. I made this with cottage cheese instead of the ricotta, halved the recipe, used chicken breast that I first seasoned and grilled, THEN cubed….and also added about 8-10 slices of bacon, crumbled up and added in….can you guess how amazing it was? ;-D Thanks!

  5. Meg – yes, I think you could add broccoli. Fresh or Frozen would work.

    I've never frozen it, but I think it would be fine. I always just make half and it is still a ton of food.

  6. Hi! This looks wonderful! I do have 2 questions…1) Do you think you can add broccoil? and if so would you think frozen or fresh and 2) do you think you could make this and just freeze half?
    Sorry for the probably simple questions, I'm just pretty new to cooking! 🙂

  7. Ok, making this today. My cheese hating hubby is out of town…so my girls and I are cooking every cheese meal we can!
    hehe
    It's true…the mice will play!

  8. Made this last night! Used penne noodles, cottage cheese vs the ricotta, and did not add the parsley. It was great! Next time will only use HALF of everything though because it was ALOT of food!
