Baked Ziti is a great dish that you can make ahead of time and freeze. When you are ready to eat it you just have to pull out of the freezer and right into the stove it goes. So I don’t bake it first, I prepare, cover and then bake when ready to eat. So for those busy nights your dinner will be a breeze. A great money saving tip is that you can freeze cottage cheese and use it in this recipe too! I like to serve this with a salad and Homemade Garlic Bread.
Tip for best success – do not cook your Pasta until al dente. It is best to leave under cooked so that it doesn’t get mushy from freezing and to be sure to cover with mix and sauce for best results.
