Easy Italian Pasta Bake - I used this recipe as "inspiration" and substituted ingredients to make it my own! I used vodka sauce, instead of tomato sauce, and added uncooked mushrooms, zucchini and broccoli to the casserole before baking. I also sautéed some onion in a pan, and then added the beef. I substituted Skim Mozzarella for 2%, to cut back on fat. Turned out to be DELICIOUS!

My favorite pasta do have to cook the pasta even though they don't say that. also, penne is good, and i like angel hair spaghetti for it.
