The recipe tasted very good, but it is also a very heavy meal. I suggest using regular, maybe even skim milk, and starch to lighten the fat content. You may also want to use light or fat free cheeses for this one. I used regular cheese and half and half milk and I think that's what made the meal so heavy. It tastes good though.

Very delicious....extremely easy to make if you buy the prepackaged shredded italian cheese mixture :) I used 2% milk instead, but even could go lighter next time...maybe even try a macaroni noodle instead too. Everyone loved it!!!

This ziti is not your typical ziti, but it is amazing. I too recommend getting the italian shredded cheese package, much easier. The crushed red pepper really makes this recipe pop. Love it! Took it to a family reunion and got many compliments.
