Comfort food from my childhood and a perennial top choice for my own children's birthday dinners. A mid-20th century take on lasagna -- this mildly tangy casserole is easy to make and easy to like. When I can't find crinkly noodles, I use mini lasagna noodles or even regular lasagna broken in pieces or, in a pinch, egg noodles. But the pasta's ruffled edge is part of the pleasure of this dish and worth looking for.
