    Chef #583577's Note:

    The ingredients are so simple but the flavors are spectacular! This is the best baked ziti I have ever had! I have made this before when I only had 8 tomatoes and I added 1/2 pint of home-canned tomato sauce to the mixture and it was just as good!! I have also substituted penne pasta for the ziti with great results! I also usually add a little more cheese - like using the entire 2 cups in the mixture and sprking additional cheese over the top! Tomato prep takes a bit of time but it is so worth it - the flavor is so superior to anything canned!!
