Cheesy Pasta Skillet from An Alli Event on

I'm reaching way back into my recipe archives to pull out a family favorite from when my children were growing up. I was twenty-something when I first made this dish! It's Cheesy Pasta Skillet and it's a classic! Just to let you in on a secret, my now-grown son still prefers this cheesy pasta skillet dish over all the other pasta dishes I make.

Another plus for this dish is that it's all done in one pan! It's easy to make and easy to clean up - a winning combination! When I made this last week, my 24 year old daughter said it was the best pasta she had ever had and wondered why I didn't make it more often. I still remember (decades ago) the first time I made this dish. Since it's all cooked in the same skillet, I was concerned that the spaghetti would not cook properly. Boy, was I wrong! Just add a salad and garlic bread and you're done! Of course, I've been known to buy the pasta sauce with veggies and let this dish stand alone!
