Penne pasta is my husband's favorite type of pasta.  I always have to reserve a little pasta back for my youngest son.  The first serving is always noodles, no sauce.  Second serving he requests the sauce!

You can definitely make this on the stove top and be done, but I like to sometimes finish this out on the stove and make a casserole.

I love all kinds of cheese on my pasta dishes.  We mainly use cheddar and mozzarella. After combining the cooked pasta, and the meat sauce, I add to the 9x13 pan.  Then top with favorite shredded cheese.  Pasta seems to go a little further this way, and leftovers are a big deal in our house, too.
