Baked Ziti

Baked ziti is a lot like classic lasagna, except without all the fuss and layering.

This freezer recipe is enough to feed a real crowd—30 to 40 people!

You can choose to thaw all four of the pans at once, or thaw the pans one at a time if you only need to feed 6-10 people (or a family of four, and you want leftovers!). We love that this recipe can be frozen for a few weeks or a few months, and that it’s just as rich and cheesy as when it first went into the freezer. Baked ziti is the perfect dish for potlucks, family gatherings, or midwinter comfort food.
