Easy To Make Ziti Bake

An easy noodle bake recipe to delight your taste buds.

I’m a little bit of a pasta nut so when a recipe calls for flavorful garden sauce and noodles, I’m good to go. Boiling noodles and adding simple ingredients was enough to allow me to do this weeks cooking video. You really can’t go wrong with high quality ground meat and adding different seasoning to get the right base for your noodle bake.

This recipe is part of our ‘Easy Recipes for Two‘ video series, look how tasty this Ziti bake is.

This golden baked Ziti Bake was the bomb! Thank goodness, we made so much, we’ll be eating it all week. Just kidding! The ingredients listed here are for two people, so if you’re cooking for a family of four simply double the recipe. We served this meal with cheese bread that came pre-made from our local grocery store.
