    I made this dinner tonight!! Super good. I did skip the "Carefully pour hot water into dish until it comes up to the top layer of potatoes. Tightly cover dish with foil and bake until liquid is absorbed and pasta and potatoes are tender, about 1 hour." Boiling the pasta ahead of time.

      I was wondering what your bake time was if you skipped the hour? all you did was layer up ingredients and toast them basically until everything was crisp?

    My kids ADORE this. It's very quick to put together since you don't have to pre boil the pasta. The pasta does come out a little on the soft side when I make it, but I think that adds to the appeal for children.

    Doesn't the pasta need to be cooked ahead of time? We tried this and it did not turn out at all. Something is missing from the instructions....
