Who could deny a delicious baked pasta dish? I don't think my willpower is any match for it. Honestly, any opportunity I have to make a large batch of baked ziti I am GAME. Sure, this actual recipe doesn't include ziti - we're more of rigatoni lovers here - but baked pasta oozing with melted cheese and ricotta is never a bad time.
Let's face it: carbs are always put to shame because of their reputation at being starchy, filled with refined sugar and not the best of nutrients. I am someone who struggled significantly with food, diets, weight-loss for YEARS, especially when I was in my late teens/early 20s. I finally decided to give up binge eating, starving, obsessing, counting, and restricting myself of any food, as it has its own purpose and place. I absolutely love carbs. Breads, pastas, you name it -- why can't we enjoy it from time to time? Making this baked ziti reminds me of how much I love simple, underrated pasta dishes, and reinstates my love of carbs all over again.
WHEN you make this, you have to let me know your thoughts. Comment, share, like and follow me on instagram (links at the bottom of this post). I promise this will be a go-to recipe time and time again for family, friends, and perfect for those busy weeknights.
A timeless classic pasta dish as easy as 1, 2, 3. This ultra yummy and satisfying baked ziti is made with the simplest ingredients, no frills, and can be prepped ahead of time and heated before serving. I don't think it gets any better than that. Oh wait, cheeeeeese.
