Baked Ziti Recipe

Baked Ziti is a perfect meal when you are entertaining guests and have a lot of people to feed because it makes a lot. For our little family, we usually have leftovers for days out of one batch of baked ziti. I love anything with sauce and cheese, so this is one of my favorite meals. You can also freeze leftovers for another time, or even double the recipe to have some frozen for a quick meal. If you do freeze it, to reheat I usually reheat it in a pot with a little extra sauce to keep it from drying out.
