    The pasta absorbed all the moisture when I froze it. I had to add extra sauce on top of each portion when I served it.

    I have made this recipe before and agree with some of the other posters....by substituting pizza sauce for the spaghetti sauce, it is much more like pizza. This is very filling and kids typically love it! Have continued making it and subbing the pizza sauce, serving salad and garlic bread on the side.
