View Full Version : In Need of a Baked Ziti Recipe
03-24-2009, 12:14 PM
I am supposed to be cooking dinner for ~25 people on Saturday and the request was made for baked ziti. I am sure I can make it but I do not have a recipe for baked ziti because this is not something that my family cooks. We are from a different area of Italy where ziti is not one of the standard dishes. If anyone has a good baked ziti recipe I would be greatly appreciative if they would share it with me. Normally, I would find one on the net but since it is for a group of people, not just my gf and I, I would prefer to have a recipe that has worked for others rather than an "anonymous" recipe from the net.
Thanks in advance! :)
BTW - I am going to PM Obby to see if she has one. :)

get one of those big throwaway roasters. cook about 5 pounds of ziti(and do your guests a favor and NOT cook it all the way, it'll soften up even more in the oven. either make your own sauce(which i would not suggest, you'd spend more) or buy those massive restaurant sized cans of ragu or hunts. mix sause and ziti in roaster, cover with cheese back at 350 for ~2 hours. make sure you cover the whole thing with foil until about the last 20 or so mins. if you don't you'll end up with an impenetrable layer of cheese. i also suggest having extra sauce on the side, i always do for baked pasta dishes...

This is the recipe I use.
It's a bit down the page, but I wasn't going to take credit for it because it's not my family's :) But it is now. :lick:
