I have a question about the recipe "Baked Pasta with Chicken Sausage" from Merrill Stubbs. Are the 2 Tablespoons of butter intended for buttering the baking pan or meant to be in the recipe?
See step 6 the butter goes on top before baking-"Spread the pasta evenly into the baking dish. Dot evenly with the butter, and bake until bubbly and brown, 7 to 10 minutes. Cool for a few minutes before serving."
