You are welcome for this Baked Ziti Recipe , make it and you’ll see.ย I have totally been in a casserole binge the past month and my family is NOT complaining.ย That’s because my casseroles tend to have cheese…. let me correct that…. my casseroles have TONS of cheese

Not only tons of cheese but I always make sure to have that top layer of cheese – you know what I am talking about – that cheese that gets all golden baked goodness

And…. now I am hungry.

Enjoy this baked Ziti recipe — it simply rocks I am beyond confident that if you make this baked ziti you and anyone else who tries it will love it

One more note – I know the pasta used is NOT ziti …. My super market Winco did not carry ziti — how does a store not have ziti is BEYOND me. You can use Penne for your baked ziti, it just wont have those ridges to hold the saucy goodness, but you’ll enjoy your baked ziti none the less- trust me!

This recipe is gluten -free. If you have not tried Barilla gluten – free pasta make sure you do — it really rocks ( not sponsored….. but if you want to send me a truck of ย Barilla gluten – free pasta I would not object!

If you do not want to use chicken broth you can use vegetable broth

This recipe is enough for 4 extremely hungry people or 6 semi – hungry people

I went a little crazy with the final product pictures — seriously this dish cannot take a bad picture!

Most photogenic baked ziti ever!
