Sorry but some recipes are a "starting point or a "base" and this is one of them. I made this for a pot luck where I had the task of the pasta and vegetable dish. Yes, it is what I call a base recipe and, as such, it was a perfect base. By itself I could not have served it to my family or to my friends. Here are my changes:
First, I sauteed chopped onions, red bell pepper and celery with the garlic. Second, I added Fox Point seasoning (Penzey's miracle for anything vegetables!) at the same time I added the pasta. Finally, I baked it but added the breadcrumbs and parsley as another reviewer suggested. It was delicious. I gave it 4 stars because as written, it would be fine for a beginner or someone who is not an experienced cook but wants to leave the mac and cheese box behind.
Thanks for sharing.
