I love being able to make copy cat restaurant recipes — I love restaurant food but not the prices this recipe costs about $10 to make but will feed 6 – now I know the Olive Garden does deals BUT you will never find a deal like that there 😉

To make this recipe gluten – free simply use a pound of gluten – free pasta ( works great I have done it a number of times)

This is one of the easiest recipes to make – I usually add in some cooked chicken 🙂

Here is a closeup of the final dish — IF you want a brown cheese topping simply broiler the baked pasta for about 5 minutes ( maybe a little less) – my family is not huge about that so I keep it melted

You can freeze the final dish – how I freeze the dish is cut the casserole into individual servings put them into ziploc bags and stick it in the freezer. My husband then nukes in the microwave 🙂

Okay one more final product shot and then off the to the recipe
