Baked Ziti

This recipe is like an easy version of lasagna. It is quick and delicious! It is a great
dish for a dinner party, family dinner, pot luck, or even to make for someone that is sick, they can just through it in the oven and bake it themselves. No matter why you make it, it will be a guaranteed hit!

I chose to show you the quickest method for this recipe using jarred spaghetti sauce. You can instead of jarred spaghetti sauce use:

  • 3 cans of low sodium Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp of Basil
  • 1 Tbsp of Oregano
  • 2 Tbsp of Garlic
This dish is also great for a vegetarian dish, just omit the Ground Turkey.
