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, an easy Ziti Bake.
You really can’t go wrong with high quality ground meat and adding different seasoning. This is a uncomplicated way to get the right base for any noodle bake. More is not always better when it comes to cooking.

Doesn’t our golden brown Ziti bake look mouthwatering? 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 and a small side salad with our home made lemon vinaigrette.
This golden baked Ziti Bake was the bomb!
For a healthy alternative make your own Ziti bake with ground turkey and add a mixed green salad. I get hungry just looking at the pictures and love the fact that it’s so easy to make. This noodle bake definitely made it into our monthly dinner rotation. Maybe I will try it with ground turkey myself the next time.
