Best Ziti I have ever made! Added a chopped onion and minced garlic to the sausage, and pepperoni for the husband. Also increased the Italian seasoning to the ricotta. Excellent for a potluck or get well/bereavement meal.
via Janet Walworth (made this with Ragu sauce and seasoning for an FCA event) DELICIOUS! Spaghetti sauce and three kinds of Italian cheeses make a surprisingly quick and budget-friendly baked ziti that's perfect for a weeknight meal.

Baked Ziti - yummy and easy and makes enough for a couple dinners and a lunch. use what you have on hand .rigatoni noodles and a jar of sauce with Italian sausage for example. the hint of Italian sausage in with the ground beef tastes great.
