    bramble's Note:

    This baked ziti is absolutely delicious and whenever I make people come back for thirds! Since it is a bit involved for me, I usually make one to bake immediately and freeze another pan to cook later, so this recipe makes two pans. Fresh basil is essential to get the right flavor.

      This was really good! I love that it makes a second pan that can be frozen for a night when I don't feel like cooking. Super easy and super yummy. Thanks for posting!

      This was a big hit at Church Potluck with the Vegetarian's and well as others. I have been asked where I found this and I have give them this web page. There was very little left overs. I only used half of the cheese it called for and it was still good.

      This is outstanding! Delicious. Filling, but not heavy. This could be made for just about anyone. Our pan is not very large, so I stuck to the proportions, but I did use basil olive oil to brown the zucchini and saute the onions/garlic. I think we could add more of the fresh basil, but it was delicious per the recipe.
