    Delish's Note:

    I know there are a lot of baked ziti recipes out there but this one has double the meat. My husband loves beef and I usually end up putting in more meat than is called for. This is so hearty and delicious. I often like to add a can of drained stewed tomatoes or diced tomatoes. I have also added a little bit of cottage cheese to the ricotta mixture to use it up. It still tasted great :) Make sure to serve with breadsticks or garlic bread!

      Made this for Thanksgiving Eve, for out-of-town family staying with us for the holidays. A wow dish--thick, meaty, cheesy. Delicious comfort food, served with garlic bread and salad. Thanks for sharing.
