Snow days and school delays call for a good easy pasta dish.
After a long day of shoveling the snow back outside and loading the dryer, this great meal feeds the crowd and most of these items you should have on hand.
If not feel free to substitute and make this an everything pizza casserole.
Onions, mushroom, cooked ground beef, additional cheese... put those kiddos to work.
You'll be a snow day star....
