  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter a 2 quart ovenproof casserole dish; set aside.
  2. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente. Drain.

Add cheeses 1 handful at a time, stirring constantly until cheeses are melted and smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in egg yolks. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Mix in pasta. Spoon into prepared dish.
  4. Bake until heated through, approximately 10 minutes. Serve hot.

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.
