Weeknight Baked Ziti

baked ziti

I love easy weeknight dinners. Pete and I work 14 hour days so anything simple is really the way to go. Baked Ziti is one of those simple meals. Plus, I can make a full tray of it and we can have it for at least two meals. It makes life that much easier.

Make this easy weeknight baked ziti, open a bagged salad, and dinner is served. Twice for us (and maybe lunch too depending on how hungry we are after our long work nights).

Weeknight Baked Ziti

What You’ll Need:
