Does the pasta need to be cooked first or will it cook while it’s baking? Thanks It’s for dinner tonight. Looks delicious!

Hi Nancy, it should cook while it's baking. Make sure it's all the way submerged. It may need a longer cooking time if it's not quite done enough. Smaller pasta shapes will do the best.
