Creamy, Meaty Baked Ziti

Posted on

We had people over for supper this past weekend, and I’d planned to make my Extra Meaty Baked Ziti.  Well, this is what I get for not checking my ingredients before I went to the grocery.  I didn’t have the cottage cheese or fresh mozzarella.  Rather than change the menu entirely, I just opted to […]
