      You know, I had never had baked ziti before - even eating out. I found this recipe when I was "on the prowl" for something totally different a couple of nights ago. Followed the recipe to a tee (except I subbed salt-free homemade meatless sauce and low-sodium chicken broth so that I could enjoy it without feeling guilty!) and BINGO! I was in business. Served it with a very crisp green salad topped with very spicy Greek olive oil dressing and my homemade sourdough croutons, and it was a meal to remember.

      Delicious. I added lots of sliced mushrooms with the mince because I love them. I will make this again many times.

      This was another great dish. Made plenty, ate the leftovers the next day, it tasted even better if that is possible.
