This is a simple basic ziti recipe, the perfect jumping off place to add your own ingredients, and make it yours! I followed the recipe, as written, and we enjoyed a great baked ziti, one that I would be happy to share with a friend or neighbor. I think it would be wonderful with a meat sauce or even with some Italian sausage or pepperoni thrown in with the sauce. And an 8 portion recipe is perfect for us; 1 (X 2) serving, straight out of the oven...1 (X 2) serving, as leftovers, a couple of days later, and freezing the last 4 squares, as a 'Quick, what's for dinner?' night! Thanks for sharing, ilovecookingsomuch! Made for Spring PAC 11 - http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=352458
