Yum! This cheesy and easy casserole is fantastic and definitely feeds a crowd. The Italian sausage adds just the right amount of spice to the dish. The three types of cheese make the casserole super cheesy (and delicious). Beth's Baked Mostaccioli would be a simple weeknight meal. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
