  1. Made this Baked Ziti dinner today. It was a homerun everybody loved it. Thank you for the recipe.

  2. When do you put in the cheese?

  3. Amy, put it on top before putting into the oven.

  4. I made this tonight with a few small additions, just because I had them and I always add extra seasoning to jar sauce. I added Italian seasoning, grated parmesan and about 4-6 ozs shredded mozzarella to the pasta\sauce mixture before pouring it in the baking dish. And I didn’t have ziti,so I used bowtie pasta. It turned out delicious! Will definitely make it again!

    Thanks, Julia!
