I'm basing my rating on taste and comfort value. Mine didn't come out looking anywhere as good as awalde's but if you hadn't seen her pic this is an A-1 casserole. Mine didn't hold together so that it could be cut into squares. Since we are two (most of the time) I made a half recipe and after dinner tonight we still have two more dinners each! Loved the cinnamon, that's great addition. I will try this again to see if I can get it to firm up, but please don't let this stop you from giving this a try. It tastes wonderful even if you do have to scoop instead of slice it.
Made this last night for dinner using a 4-liter casserole, which it filled to the top. No substitutions or exclusions, made as written. Directions were a little awkward, no mention of size for the "baking mold", whatever that is. But the finished product was marvelous. Wonderful mix of tastes! Made for PRMR 12/10.
We so enjoyed this wonderful comforting meal awalde. It is well worth the extra effort. The nutmeg and cinnamon were a nice surpise, they added a lovely depth of flavor to the dish. I loved that you could taste all the ingredients, it was perfectly balanced. I made the recipe exactly as written but used fusilli noodles and pecorino cheese. What a big beautiful casserole this makes, it will be feeding us for the next few days. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, which I will make again.
