My son-in-law said this was one of my best casseroles ever, so that really says something! Based on recommendations, I increased all the ingredients except the cheeses and egg. I added a finely chopped onion and some chopped pepperoni while frying the ground beef. I also added a heaping tablespoon of dried parsley to the ricotta mixture and some ground pepper. Baked it for 25 mins. covered with foil and then uncovered for another 15 mins. I used a box of three-colored rotini, instead of the penne, and the corkscrews held the sauce & cheeses beautifully. NOTE: Make sure that your pasta is slightly undercooked before assembling--I even rinsed it in cold water to stop the cooking process. Will definitely be making this again soon!
