      This recipe does make lots! It is easy to put together and freezes well. I followed CarolAT's suggestion and used two 24 oz jars of sauce and three 8 oz packages shredded mozzarella cheese. I did add some freshly grated Parmesan as well. The casserole was layered in a 9x9 inch square pan (estimated 4 servings) and 6 loaf pans (estimated 3 servings each). The pans were covered with foil and placed in the freezer for a quick weeknight dinner.

      This dish is very tasty; however, the directions were a little hard to follow and the serving size posted is incorrect. The directions for: 2 your favorite sauce and 3 pre-shredded mozzarella cheese was not clear so I had to guess. I used two 24oz jars of my favorite tomato and basil sause and 3 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese. I also used Penzeys Italian Herb mix for the Italian seasoning. The recipe states the dish is for 4 servings but then calls for 2 lbs of ziti pasta. I made 1 1/2 lbs of ziti, and I had at least 16 servings not four. This recipe makes a lot so I decided to freeze some to enjoy on other days. This recipe would be great to use if you had to take a dish for a pot luck because it will serve a lot of people.
