    It was really good but I’ll definitely add red pepper flakes and extra seasoning next time.

    I loaded it with chopped vegetables and scaled back on the mozzarella. It was a big hit with the family

    Amazing! I didn’t have any marinara sauce, so I used a large can of diced tomatoes and about 1.5 cups of water with some seasoning! Still turned out great, and my mom asked for the recipe!

    Very good i doubled the ricotta mixture and used less of the mozzarella cheese and no provolone (didn’t have it in the house). I also added meat to my marinara and it was excellent

    This is the best ziti I have ever made!! Tonight was the second time I made it, I used pizza sauce and pepperoni and it was amazing!

    It was good but I prefer my food to have more kick to it.

    Turned out pretty good! Just kind of bland, will add additional seasonings next time. I also added some italian sausage to the receipe

    Best baked ziti EVER! We cooked up our usual pound of hot Italian sausage and pound of ground beef then realized this is a vegetarian recipe. Meat was cooked so there was no going back! Followed the rest of the recipe exactly (except for the mozzarella, we definitely added quite a bit more than called for). Wonderful meal and the leftovers were fantastic!

    This was incredible!! I added a pound of browned Italian sausage to the sauce mixture, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. It was easy, flavorful, and cheesy. This is going to be a go-to recipe going forward.
