Dump Ziti

Holly Deshane


I copied this recipe from the internet quite a few years ago. It's quick and easy, and great for those days when you don't have a lot of time to prepare supper. Plus, it's pasta which says it all.
(I forgot to take a picture of it after it was cooked so this is what it looks like before going in the oven.)
Also, you can cut the recipe in half which is what I did when I prepared it, but it makes a great recipe to take to pot lucks when the whole recipe is done. It makes quite a bit.
