Baked Penne Casserole
I love this recipe for several reasons. It is so easy to make and can even be made ahead and chilled or frozen until ready to bake. (If frozen, give it some time to thaw in the fridge before baking.) In addition to being super easy to prepare, it's delicious. Goes well with salad and breadsticks. This is an easily portable meal for pot lucks and meal trains too.

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
