There's something beautiful about a pan of baked pasta. It's hot. It's cheesy. And it has that crusty cap crowning the top of it, the accessory that mere bowls of noodles can't match. Before it gets too warm outside, tuck into one of these dishes -- dishes that double as a quick weeknight meal or a dinner-party showstopper. The leftovers (if there are any) will heat up perfectly the next day.
