Recipe Tips

  • If you prefer, you could make this dish with other types of pasta; penne would be great in this dish!
  • If you don’t have a large skillet, use a stock pot instead.
  • The pasta on the outer layer will be a little bit toastier, but the rest will be perfectly soft and tender.
  • To make the top layer of cheese extra melty (yum!) just pop the skillet under the broiler for 3-4 minutes.
