The Godfather Himself Would Approve!
Om nom nom! There’s something about Italian pasta dishes that make my mouth water, just talking about them. Maybe it’s the flavorful tomato sauce, or all that cheese these dishes usually include. Whatever the case, they are always delicious and over the years I’ve tried so many recipes, I’ve lost count! This recipe, however, is one that I never intend to lose. It’s my family’s favorite and we make it at least every other week.
What I love about this baked meatball ziti (besides the mind-blowing flavor, of course) is that it is rather simple to make. The recipe includes directions to make the meatballs from scratch, but if you’re in a hurry you can definitely use store-bought meatballs.
What I usually do is whenever I make meatballs for dinner, I make a double or even a triple batch, and freeze some for later. That way I always have homemade meatballs for this baked ziti – like I said; we make this very often! If you want to amp up the flavor even more, you could make your own marinara sauce.
