    Bev's Note:

    Looking for a way to use up that leftover Tomato Sauce you made the other day? What better way than to try this ziti recipe! You can use canned sauce, but homemade is always better! Hope you enjoy this recipe! My kids practically grew up on it

      This is a essentially the same recipe that I have always used and is on the side of the San Giorgio ziti box. The ricotta is increased by 1/4 cp and the sauce by 1/2 cup, but otherwise the recipe is the same. I have always used this recipe as a base and then add 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the ricotta mixture. Very delicious. I use the fresh mozzarella packed in water. I think it is less processed than the packaged shredded type and makes for a creamier sauce.

      Yummy recipe! The hubby loved it. I used whole wheat pasta instead, but it didn't change the flavor at all. Thank you for a great post!

      Very good! and so quick and easy. I used homemade sauce and substituted 4% cottage cheese for the ricotta. I was out of fresh parsley so I used 1 Tbl. of dry and increased the garlic powder to 1 tsp. I sprinked the top with romano cheese. My DH who is not a great pasta lover gave it 10 stars. My DS & DD gave it a 4. I will make it again. Next time, I'll try ricotta. Thanks, Bev.
