The classic Italian supper comes together remarkably quickly -- garlic bread bakes alongside the ziti, and a green salad is tossed in mere minutes.

    I have made this recipe countless times - sometimes with the salad and bread, too. It always gets great reviews. I think it helps to use a good tomato sauce, such as Raos, or one with less than 3g sugar. The sweet ones give it an off taste.

    Very good ziti recipe. I added frozen spinach & some crumbled ground beef. But it all fell into place nicely.

    Love this. I double the recipe and add 1 lb ground beef and 1 lb mild italian sausage and put it in 4 quart dish. Enough to serve a crowd. To make it a little easier to layer, I just mix the noodles in with the ricotta mixture and then put 1/2 sauce on bottom, then ricotta noodle mixture and layer of sauce on top covered with the remaining cheese.
