    Thank you for the photos Lillian!! Whoa! 2 tsp of salt for each sauce is a bit much for my husband and I. He has heart issues and I have high blood pressure. The recipe is from Cooking Light magazine. That's why you don't see that much salt and cheese. You don't have to worry, the breadcrumb mixture is not crunchy. I'll bet it was good the way you made it! I do love the cinnamon and nutmeg flavors too. I learned from Cooking Light that if you want a cream flavor, use 1 cup of 1% milk with a dash of nutmeg and that way you don't have all the fat. Glad you enjoyed it.

    I made this tonight and it was very good! I was a little nervous that it wouldn't taste as good as it did because I found a few problems with the recipe while I was making it! It needed lots more salt than stated. I added 2 tsp. of salt to the meat mixture and I added 2 tsp. of salt to the cheese mixture. And I'm not really a salt person! It states to use 4 cups of pasta...Well I didn't know how to measure that when its uncooked so I just used the whole box, which was 12 oz. This was the perfect amount considering the amount of cheese mixture. The recipe said to use a 2 qt. casserole but it wouldn't fit, so I used a 3 qt. which fit perfectly. Also 2 Tbls. of grated cheese is way too little...I had to triple that amount just to be able to get an even layer on the top of the casserole. I omitted the breadcrumbs on top because I didn't want it to be crunchy. It all turned out wonderfully...the combination of flavors is so unique because of the cinnamon, nutmeg (I used fresh ground) and feta cheese! Its not the type of pasta dish this old fashioned girl is used to, but I loved it! I added the step by step photo's!

    I'm partial to Cooking Light recipes. It's got to be good. But strange that Cooking Light did not spec out the size of the casserole dish, besides large. They are usually so meticulous.
