    And so easy.

  2. Sounds delish! And it’s easy! And I can make it wheat/dairy free – at least I think I can. Hope it tastes good without the cheese… Thanks for sharing!!

    I want vodka sauce!!!

    My family loves pasta casserole too. I need to make it again soon. I’ve also cooked just the sauce and then froze it to eat later. It freezes well and saves a step after work :) I will cook up a big batch and divide into quart sized baggies.

    What a great and easy recipe…and isn’t that Trader Joe’s Vodka Sauce phenomenal?? It is almost as good as Rao’s but at less than half the cost. Love it!

    OK, so I went to TJ to buy the ingredients because J is working late and I have to cook dinner tonight. While we were there, the girls found the lost TJ Kitten and they got to pick out prizes from the treasure chest! Now they want to go back to find the kitten again.
    I am making this tonight!
