This is the last party post and I wanted to get it in before everyone goes off to enjoy their Thanksgiving dinners. This Giada dish is an old favorite of mine - it has great Italian flavors and it preps easily in advance. I often make it the night before I need it, bring it to room temperature before baking, and bake just in time to serve warm on the dinner table.
I have also made this as a main dish - just use 3/4 pound of pasta instead of one pound, and add 1 pound crumbled, cooked Italian sausage to the mix. Otherwise, I don't make any changes to Giada's great recipe so the link is below:
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
