Baked Ziti

Today, we’re taking a meal to a homeschooling friend who had surgery. We enjoy helping out friends and family in this way. :)

Here’s what we like to take:

  • baked ziti
  • bag of salad and dressing
  • garlic bread
  • fruit – Today we’re taking fresh pineapple.
  • brownies


Baked Ziti Recipe

  • 1 lb. ziti
  • 15 oz. ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 1/2c. mozarella cheese
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbs. dried parsley

Prepare ziti according to package directions. Combine 1/2 jar of spaghetti sauce, 1 c. of cheese and the rest of the ingredients in a big bowl. Add the cooked ziti. Mix and put in greased 13″ x 9″ pan. Top with remaining sauce and cheese. Cover and bake at 350°F for approx. 30 minutes.

When I take this to a friend, I prepare the recipe up until the point of baking. I write the baking instructions on the foil wrap with a permanent marker. This way the family can stick it in the fridge and prepare dinner when it’s convenient for them.


 What are some of your favorite foods to take to friends and family?
