I usually like leftovers, but I’m not a fan of eating leftovers for days, especially when it comes to pasta dishes.  I dunno… I feel like the noodles get bloated and mushy, and the cheese never melts the same.  But with this recipe, I don’t have to worry about that!  You just make it in a little loaf pan and it ends up being the perfect amount for two.  Yeah, you’ll probably still end up with a little leftover, but you can handle that.
