This is a good pot luck casserole, as it can be made ahead and refrigerated, then put in the oven an hour before it's needed. I always get requests for the recipe after the event! Use any shape of small pasta that you desire!

Pretty good but I would decrease or even omit the cream cheese next time. I don't really see how this recipe relates to Pakistan...I have never seen an authentic Pakistani recipe with cream cheese. Read More

While makeing the meal it seemed like it would be quite tasty esp with the onions on the top and the cream cheese & cottage cheese. I found the onions burned a little and seasoning needs to be added. I found the meal to be slightly bland. Read More

I omitted the cream cheese like others suggested spiced up the meat with onion garlic powder thyme and seasoning salt and it was still a little too bland. I may try this again as a base for future experimentation. Read More

This dish is super easy but it is in need of some basic seasoning. I added about 1/2 a green pepper to the sauce and sliced olives. Definitely a recipe you can play with and one I will make again. Read More
