Bow-tie pasta, and beefy pasta sauce is mixed with mozzarella cheese cubes and baked in the oven to make this spooky bats and cobwebs casserole. The bow-tie pasta is the bats, and the stringy, gooey mozzarella cheese is the cobwebs!
I couldn't ever find the perfect Waldorf salad - one that wasn't too mayonaise-y tasting, yet one that still held enough of the original flavor to be called a Waldorf.

When I plan brunch for a crowd, strata is one of the first dishes on my list. And I'm not alone in loving this easy breakfast casserole. So enjoy creating your own combinations using ingredients that are in season or on hand, and be prepared for compliments.
