This is a very quick pasta to make, really easy and still tastes so good even after 2 days! Very very cheesy – the way our kids likes it! For those who are not super fans of cheese, you could lessen the mozzarella before baking in the oven, don’t omit it, just lessen the amount. Even we I think it’s fabulous with mozzarella!
