Any pasta dish to be baked al forno (in the oven, okay, it's a fancy word for a pasta bake) is dear to our heart because it's so family-friendly, so complete and so undemanding of mental or physical energy.  We cook onions and garlic with butter before adding Parmesan, thyme and grain mustard to our bechamel.  Finally we add peas alongside the smoky chicken - yay,  vegies included, perfect for the slackers among us, toss it through pasta and pile it into trays before topping with crunchy breadcrumbs.
