Baked ziti is Italian comfort food. Several pounds of rich, delicious cheese, pasta, and my marinara sauce are the key components added to this dish. To me, there’s nothing so creamy and tangy and warming than a luscious bowl of baked ziti. Bake an entire tray and feed your family for week or bring it to your sick, stressed, or mourning neighbor along with a loaf of Italian crusty bread, salad and dressing.

I live in a gorgeous 1895 Victorian, No.139, with my husband Gary McDaniel, our three kids, a cranky old cat, and a golden retriver. While only four other families have called this place home, some of them made really bad choices that altered it’s classic design. And there was a cheap flipper in the mix too. Now, we’re cleaning up their messes.
