    There is so much incomplete information and instruction. Especially in regards to the linked Sunday gravy. The ziti recipe calls for 4 cups of gravy but the gravy recipe yields about one cup of well reduced thick paste. I resolved this with the pasta water. It says to put all the mozzarella in between the layers but the photo shows some on top. In general it seems to be transposed poorly. It is a tremendous 4 hour effort but the finished product is spectacular. I’m going to try to find a more complete version. I guess I could buy the book.

    I've been making this for years using my own sauce recipe. My grandson loves it but my wife says I always make too much. One slight tweak I use, I got it form watching the Sopranos and heard Uncle Junior mention it. I add fresh basil leaves between the cheeses in the middle layer.

    Delicious meal! Had to guess how much sauce (didn't have enough to complete measures in directions), what temperature to cook (went with 325), how many and what size meatballs (mine were too big and too few) and nothing is mentioned about how to integrate the meatballs into the recipe. Now that I fully understand the concept of this recipe, it will be much better next time I make it. My family loved it!

    This was an excellent dish. My wife made it for me and my associates before we went out on a hit. The gravy stains worked great in hiding the blood spatter from the guy we whacked. He had it coming. Unfortunately, the next day I was blocked up tighter than Uncle June after pleading the 5th.
