Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve with a mixed green salad and your favorite fresh fruit to round out the meal.
If you only have 1 (8-inch) square baking dish and want to free it up for other uses, line the empty dish with foil, with several inches of foil extending over sides. Assemble recipe in prepared dish; cover with plastic wrap. Freeze until firm. Use foil handles to lift pasta casserole from dish; wrap with plastic wrap, then foil. Freeze up to 2 months. When ready to serve, unwrap casserole and place in 8-inch square baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; cover with foil. Thaw overnight in refrigerator, then bake as directed.
