quick-easy-baked-zitiQuick easy baked ziti with cheese absolutely delicious, creamy, savory and just perfect. If I could give this recipe more stars, I would, because it’s also extremely flexible. I’ve made this with Italian sausage or ground turkey instead of the beef. I’ve also made a vegetarian version by substituting sliced zucchini and mushrooms for the meat.
