Easy Recipes-Aunt Lynette’s Mostaccioli

A few years ago my friend’s Aunt Lynette made Mostaccioli for a gathering we were at and my family loved it! I asked her for the recipe and I have been making it a few times a year since then. I have tweaked the recipe a bit over the years and here it is for you to share with your family.

  6. I have to admit that I’ve never heard of Mostaccioli pasta before. I searched for it because it looked like Penne or Ziti. The recipe is like an easy lasagna. I’d like to give it a try.
