Baked Ziti Casserole Recipe

Baked Ziti Casserole Recipe

Baked ziti casserole is a delicious dish to prepare for dinner during the colder months. This dish has tons of flavor from ingredients such as Italian sausage, garlic, Italian seasoning and marinara sauce. Three types of cheeses are used in this recipe—mozzarella, parmesan and ricotta. If you cannot find ziti pasta or would prefer to substitute, penne will work as well. For the marinara sauce, you can either use your favorite brand from the store or make your own. I like to serve this baked ziti with garlic bread. Enjoy.
