Substitution
Other shapes of similarly sized pasta also can be used in this casserole. Wagon wheels, mafalda (mini lasagna noodles) and penne will work well, too.
Success Hint
Larger pastas, such as lasagna noodles, work better in slow cookers because they can handle the long cooking times. Smaller pastas, such as rotini, perform better when cooked separately and stirred in at the end of cooking.
