Pasta dishes are always a hit at our house. This is a good recipe for those who favor vegetable dishes for dinner, or for others as a side dish. You can do it all in one pan! If you like bacon, crumble some cooked bacon on top for an extra treat. It is rich in flavor so serve with some homemade bread and you will have a full meal.

Creamy, cheesy, easy, and quick. Just how we like a recipe! This will be great as a side or main dish. We added some bacon bits as Sena suggested and it really brought another depth of flavor. Try this with some grilled chicken too. It's so good! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
