Baked Ziti

                                                                   

 This recipe appears in my cookbook and is one of our all time family favourites.

There was a lot of trial and error before I settled on this recipe, and it’s really all good. I thought it would whet your appetite for some post Passover pasta.

This is a cheesy, saucy, delight. Enjoy!
