Baked Ziti I


"A lady I worked with brought this in one day, and it was a hit. Now it is the favorite of all my dinner guests. It's great for a covered dish dinner too. I have made this also without the meat, and it is well received."

Hey yo, what's up fellow cookers?? Check it...I hate when people give extraordinary recipes ratings that they don't deserve. I sort my recipies by "most helpful." Every person that I know who ...
