Delicious! Made two serves and used mini penne, and added a wee bit of lemon pepper for a wonderful dinner. Love the citrus notes. Will be made again for sure. Thanks for sharing Pat! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

Very good -- we followed as written except used regular flour and regular pasta and cooked it in a casserole (10x13) instead of individual serving dishes. We cooked it a bit longer due to the larger size pan. Thanks for posting!
