    Adina Cappell's Note:

    The sauteed onions and garlic are the key to making this dish so delicious. Feel free to add mushrooms or zucchini to the saute pan- just don't add any veggies directly to the baking pan without sauteeing them first or the flavor and texture will suffer.

      I simply doubled this recipe and added 1 medium sized zucchini. I cooked it for the full 30 min. The top layer of ziti was very dry and a bit hard. Next time I will cook it for 20 min. only. It also definitely needed more spices.

      I made alot of changes to this recipe, but since I never made ziti with sauteed veggies and breadcrumbs before I'll rate it. Instead of whole tomatoes I used half a jar of tomato sauce. For the spices I used Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. I also added in some shredded cooked chicken and tuna. It came out great and everybody here enjoyed it.
