Mostaccioli Bake

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"This homey lasagna-style casserole from Dorothy Bateman of Carver, Massachusetts will appeal to the whole family. There's plenty of spaghetti sauce to keep the layers of tender pasta and spinach-cheese mixture moist. 'It's a hearty main dish that can be made early in the day, refrigerated and baked at dinnertime,' Dorothy notes."

Pretty good as written, but I found I needed to adjust this recipe the next time I made it. I didn't think there was enough sauce as it was a little dry, so I increased the amount of sauce by at...
