Anyone who is craving baked ziti, but is limited by time, this could be your go to recipe. With such simple preparation, a beginner cook to a busy mom will really appreciate getting dinner on the table with ease. A variation to this dish could be adding sliced mushrooms.

This recipe sounds so quick and easy to make! You could probably be eating this dish in 30 minutes, including prep! Cook your pasta while you are cooking your meat, throw all the ingredients together, heat and eat. I think this also would be good with turkey and a jarred sauce.

This sounds delicious and super easy. I love fast meals, especially in the summer, so that the stove doesn't need to be on heating up the house very long.

Made this for last nite's dinner. My grown son loved it and will have leftovers tonite. So good, so easy. e.
