The cheeses melt in your mouth with an Italian sweetness.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Need a hardy dinner idea? Try this quick and easy casserole. This is a tangy, creamy, layered Italian casserole. We loved the texture of the egg noodles when the creamy layer and cheese melts into them. Mixed with the meat marinara layer, it's an awesome comforting bite. This reminds us of a beef stroganoff but with a red sauce. An easy and inexpensive meal. Your family will definitely clean their plates and ask for seconds. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
