Great baked ziti!! I did make my own sauce and had some cottage cheese that needed to be used so I through that in the first layering. I followed the rest as written, other than increasing the amount of mozzarella cheese. My DS and his friend had 2 helpings and then took the other half over to DD's the next day and her boyfriend had two helpings, so I would say it was a hit for my family. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Stars Tag Game.
Quick & Easy! I mixed ground beef and italian sausage instead of just using ground beef. Added fresh garlic and frozen homemade spaghetti sauce. Great weeknight meal. Very good! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.
This was a big hit with my family. I added some chopped pepperoni to the ground beef and substituted a cup of Italian cheese blend in place of one of the cups of mozarella. It was delicious!
