FOTM: Three Cheese Baked Mostaccioli

A wonderful cheesy pasta dish  the whole family will be asking for again and again!

Three Cheese Baked Mostaccioli

Three Cheese  Baked Mostaccioli

Three Cheese Baked Mostaccioli is a recipe that was always a specialty of my sister-in-law Aunt BobbieBobbie. I’m so fortunate to have gotten her recipe years ago. We lost our beloved Bobbie to breast cancer over 8 years ago – gosh, I can’t believe it’s been that long – but we think of Aunt Bobbie EVERY time we eat her WONDERFUL Mostacciloi.

This dish is becoming a Christmas tradition in our family. You can make this dish in advance, refrigerate, then cook before serving!! It’s a real crowd pleaser with friends and family, and serves a lot!

So grab your apron and lets get started – it’s really very easy!!

    What a great way to honor your sister-in-law. She must have been a great cook because that recipe is out of this world good! I cooked it last night for my family and they loved it. The recipe is pretty simple too…which makes it even better. There was so much flavor to it…it was perfect…wouldn't change a thing. The first "wow" was when I pulled it out of the oven…it provides a GREAT presentation. Not sure which I liked more – the look, or the taste :).

    Thank you so much for posting your Aunt Bobbie's recipe for all of us to enjoy. And, I am sorry for her passing.

    Oh, and I appreciate the step-by-step pictures. I'm not a confident cook, so that helped me a lot!
