Growing up I never tasted creamy pasta dishes because it was not something my mom was accustomed to cooking. I think my first taste of any kind of creamy pasta was one that I made myself from a package. It was one of those dried instant side dishes. At that time, it was amazing how good that tasted. Fast forward now, and I can’t imagine eating anything but pasta cooked with real cream. It’s the reason why pasta Alfredo tastes so good. Nothing beats real cream.
I came up with this dish as I am often prepping meals that I can easily throw into the oven to bake after a long day at work. It’s hearty and incredibly satisfying digging into any kind of baked pasta. My family loves it and I hope yours does too.
