    Bayhill's Note:

    This is a quick dish I like to make when I need to get dinner on the table in a hurry. If you like a zestier ziti, use a hot Italian sausage. Note: cooking/prep time does not include time for cooking pasta.

      This was great, Bayhill. I've made dishes similar to this one, all with varying degrees of success. But the combination of ingredients in your recipe puts this at the top of the list. It's so easy to prepare too, and my sons have already asked that I make it again. So I know this will be a regular in my home. Made for your awesome win in the 2013 Football Pool.

      I use this recipe often making it a bit different each time. I have use a drained can of black beans in place of the meat, used ground turkey and always add lots more vegetables - mushrooms, zucchini, eggplant, frozen corn & peas - basically whatever I have in the fridge or freezer. By adding lots of veggies this truly can be a healthy 1 dish meal for both kids and adults!

      Absolutely fantastic! DH loves ziti, so I thought I'd try an upgrade from my current recipe. I used half an onion and half a green pepper and added about half a cup of a good cabernet to the sauce while simmering, but otherwise kept the recipe in tact. Very tasty, and very easy to put a hearty casserole together on a weeknight. This goes in the keeper file!
