This pasta dish is easy enough for even the nights when everyone has to be at a sporting event on opposite sides of town. (which happens a lot around here) Hope your family enjoys it as much as ours do and if you happen to have any left over it’s great the next day too!Baked Ziti Recipe | CGH LifestyleFor more Tried and True Recipes come and visit us at Eighteen25.
