Baked Ziti!!!

I made this one for dinner the other night and the kids really enjoyed it. :) I got the recipe from the site, they have great ideas and great recipes provided by members. This baked ziti was by Shawna Ballard.

  2. This was the best baked ziti I have ever made. I was a little worried about the sour cream layer and the layer of cheese slices but it turned out beautifully...fed us for two days. I'm not making baked ziti any other way. Thank you for the recipe.
