How to Make Spaghetti Pie


Baked Ziti

This recipe gets the all-around gold medal for ease of preparation, popularity, AND deliciousness. (Yes, I've been watching too much Olympics. Wait -- why wasn't I eating this WHILE I was watching the Olympics?) You don't need to wait four years for the next Winter Olympics to make this dish. In fact, make it tonight; you won't regret it.
