Baked Ziti with Mini Meatballs

Is there anything better in life than a hot, bubbly pan of baked ziti coming out of the oven for dinner?!!  Me thinks NOT!!


This recipe is at my new site. Hope to see you there :) I've posted a lot of new things.

  8. That looks ah-mazing!!! I don't get to cook cheesy dishes often b/c my husband doesn't like cheese (he is a freak). Your recipe looks fantastic! Visiting from Tasty Tuesday. Hope you'll stop by my blog to say hi. :)

  31. Hi

    In your headnotes you mentioned that you used 11/2 cups of basil in this recipe, but you only have 1 cup of basil listed in the ingredient's list, what happened to the last 1/2 cup of basil.

  32. Tried this yesterday for Sunday Dinner. Too much work! Wasn't worth it. Meatballs were flat tasting (bland). Would not recommend. No wonder they say to pour a glass of wine. You'll need it.
