    Dude i will definitely give this a try.

    Thanks, let me know how you like it.

    Maaaaaan! That looks gOOd! I think I'll make that this weekend too :)

    Question, Do you notice any difference in the bite of the pasta cooking it that way vs boiling water? Does it become pasty at all?

    Well, this dish is meant to be served the right after cooking. As the cheese sits, it stiffens up. The noodles are boiled in the sauce for 9-11 minutes which is normal cooking time for the noodles. It was not pasty at all, the noodles also absorb a lot more flavor this way vs boiling them separately. Hopefully that helps. Hopefully you like it this weekend!
