EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

Baked Ziti

Just as delicious as lasagna but requiring much less labor to get it on the table, baked ziti is a dish all cooks should have in their repertoire. Baked macaroni dishes like ziti combine cooked pasta with a sauce, vegetable, and/or meat -- and plenty of cheese. All the ingredients are layered or tossed into a casserole dish and baked in the oven for less than an hour.

 

It’s a versatile dish that can be adapted in so many ways -- adding leftover vegetables (like mushrooms, carrots, or strips of bell pepper) and/or meats (such as cut-up cooked sausage, ground meat, or chicken breasts). Vary the cheeses, using several or just one, stirring some into the pasta and sauce to hold the dish together, then topping with more cheese for a crispy, melty topping.

 

Baked ziti is an Italian American dish that has made its way into the hearts of generations. It’s a staple menu item in red-sauce Italian restaurants as well as on the Sunday table of many families. It’s an excellent make-ahead-and-freeze dish to have on hand in your own home. Baked ziti also travels well -- take one to a friend’s or serve it at a potluck -- and is an ideal choice for feeding a crowd. Really, it’s such a good, easy all-’rounder, it’s bound to become a family favorite ... if it isn’t already.
