    This looks like a wonderful and easy dish to make. I noticed you stated that you measure your pasta uncooked. How much uncooked pasta is needed to make the two cups cooked? Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Nancy.. I measured 2 cups of uncooked pasta ..its about the same once its cooked.. don’t worry about how much it is once its cooked, just measure out 2 cups and cook it ๐Ÿ™‚

        You say 6 servings, but is it 1cup a piece or what? So much easier is you know a measurement.

          Hi, I wouldn’t say it’s easier, I use a 9×13 casserole dish and get 6 servings out of it, I think most can judge 6 equal servings..

    What does 8pp per serving mean? I’m assuming it has something to do with Weight Watchers, but how does that translate to calories/fat?

      Hi.. pp stands for points plus, yes a weight watchers term.. As of yet I have not included nutritional info on my recipes, being that they are all WW recipes I have just focused on points..I know it’s something I need to do in the future but it is very time consuming and I have just been focusing on points while trying to maintain the blog and my busy life ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Looks delish! Think I could half it for an 8×8? Thanks!

      Hi, you could half it but in a 8×8 it is not really half.. so it might just be a little thinner than usual if that makes sense lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

    OK Drizzle~ My husband and I give this recipe four hands up. Not just thumbs, the whole hand. It is so good, I portioned it and I am going to have to freeze a portion for myself or my husband may it all the left overs. Definitely a keeper. Thanks and keep ’em comin’.
