Baked Ziti I

A lady I worked with brought this in one day, and it was a hit. Now it is the favorite of all my dinner guests. It's great for a covered dish dinner too. I have made this also without the meat, and it is well received.

Baked Ziti Casserole

Great ziti dish for any lover of pasta. Easy to make and 'wows' the crowd.

Eggplant-Ziti Parmesan

Rating: 4 stars
I come from a big Italian family, my mom made this all the time. Very delicious and very hardy. A great anytime meal. The secret to good eggplant is to peel and drain it, so it's not soggy. Serve with crusty italian bread, and a tossed salad, and you have a hearty meal. It seems like a lot of work but it's not. I hope you enjoy your meal.

The Best Baked Ziti

Rating: 4.95 stars
I am half Italian, was raised eating the finest Italian-American cuisine, and have filmed almost 2000 recipe videos, so when you consider all of those facts, it seems incredible that I have never posted a video for baked ziti. Hopefully I make up for that long wait by posting what I think is the best version of it.

Three cheeses layered with pasta and marinara sauce. This recipe is so easy and so good!
