    Mirj's Note:

    When I first saw this recipe I could not believe how easy it was. Of course, I can't leave a recipe alone, and added a few changes to make it more "mine."

      I made this and just added ground turkey to the tomato sauce. It was one of the best baked ziits I have ever had!

      I made this using a little less spaghetti sauce and it worked, but I think next time I'd use the full amount to ensure that all the pasta is covered and doesn't get dried out. It is simple to make and the results were delicious! Thanks for a meal that was enjoyed by all!
