This looks perfect for busy nights at my house. I usually just do a regular baked ziti.

LaVonne – Really! You have never cooked with ziti?

LaVonne October 12, 2014 - 12:09 pm

Val, is Ziti the same as Penne? Or two different noodles? Because I have never purchased a noodle called Ziti before. I have had it at Sbarro Pizza before 🙂
