EZ V Ziti Bake

Mark Ford


The V is for -Very Versatile... Add More Cheese, Change Meat(s), Add More Vegetables... What ever Be Creative . I've even stirred in the Mozzarella no Problem...not too Pretty But Just Add More Mozzarella @ the appropriate time and its GR8.

I Usually cut it in half and bake it in an 8X8 Pan for the two of Us Still have plenty with out eating it for a week... Can even Double it and freeze one pan before baking then just Pop it in the oven for an hour and a half directly from the freezer.
