    Yes...sounds confusing about whether or nor the noodles or pasta is cooked first or not...I am assuming cooked?
    As far as tthe comment about the cheese getting dark after baking X 1 hr....since all food in the casserole is cooked the cooking time would not have to be percise...just enough to blend

    Made this the other day. I have been cooking for quite some time and have never thrown out a dish until I made this one. - 12/13/08

    Very Good
    Quite tasty...I either wouldn't bake for an entire hour, or wait before adding the cheese. It was pretty dark by the end of baking time. - 12/7/08

    This sounds really good! Also, if you look at the ingredient details it states that you need 8oz of cooked pasta - 12/7/08
