It only took about 30 minutes to make, that's not so bad. But the best part is that you can make this meal ahead of time, come home from a long day at work and throw it in the oven for an hour while you deal with your life. E says he wants me to make it again so that's a pretty big deal at our house. Try it if you dare.
P.S. The recipe made ALOT of noodles so had enough left over to make a few individual macaroni and cheese dishes to throw into the microwave tomorrow. Just layer noodles, cheese, noodles, cheese and then add a little milk in the bottom. 2 birds...one stone!!
