REVIEW: recipe rating
I can't believe how simple this recipe is! And it tastes great. I'd never done an overnight pasta dish and was worried it would be mushy, but it wasn't. Does anyone know if you could freeze this and then cook it after it thaws? I would love to find a way to keep one on hand in the freezer.

My husband and I were having a large dinner party so made this recipe for 24 and it was perfect. I made it, a salad, buttered the garlic bread, dessert and set the tables the night before.

It was perfect, everyone loved it and I was able to spend my time being a hostess.
