Results

We did a bit of a pick your own assembly.  Ana served her pasta and sauce separately, while I added cheese, cilantro, avocado and corn to top it off. This was a win from a dinner perspective.  There were even secondary uses applied – you can use it to stuff mini sweet pepper and bake with some more cheese.  Cait liked that version even better.
