  1. Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 9-by-13 inch baking dish or possibly 2 1/2-qt casserole. Bring 6 qts salted water to a boil. Add in pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, till al dente, 10 to 12 min. Drain pasta and rinse with cool water. Drain again and place in a large bowl.
  2. In medium saucepan over medium heat, bring lowfat milk to a boil. Remove from heat.
