Baked ziti is comprised of three components; sauce, filling and cooked pasta. These are assembled after being prepared, then baked before serving. The final result is reminiscent of lasagna, but much easier and faster to prepare. It's sure to become your family's favorite!
"Does freeze & reheat well. I followed these instructions I found online- place ziti in freezer for 30 min so easier to handle then wrap individual servings in plastic wrap then place in freezer bag. When reheating take out individual ppeice remove plastic wrap place in micro on defrost setting breaking up as needed- once thawed reheat. Just as good as when made!"- Momof2too

china__dolly91 2 months agoWe loved this baked ziti! Boyfriend said he should be able to give it 6 stars, and from him that's something because he's a picky eater! Definitely making this again, next time maybe with my own twist in it!

Brokk66 5 months agoI used half of what the recipe called for and it was more than enough for 5 people. I added fresh basil and oregano, and it turned out great. I didn't 'layer' the ingredients, I just mixed the whole thing together and added a light layer of Parmesan to the top before baking.
