EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Prepare and assemble the casserole, without baking, up to a day ahead. Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes. Then, remove foil, add bacon and bake 5 minutes longer.

Lose the bacon for a meat-free twist, or just add bacon to bacon lovers' bowls for a pasta that pleases vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
