    OceanLuvinGranny's Note:

    I got the basic recipe from the back of a spaghetti sauce can but have added ingredients that we like to make it special for our family's tastes. Sometimes, I take it to potlucks and come home with an empty dish! I always make a big pot of it when my son's friends are here and they eat it all! Growing Hope you like it too if you try it!

      We love ziti recipes & this one will be added to the collection. We also love garlic so we added in a couple cloves, however, we don't care for black olives so I sub'd pickled jalapenos instead. I found the dish abit on the creamy side so next time we'll cut the sour cream & cottage cheese, probably in half. Tasty recipe, thanks for sharing.
