Ziti Al Forno (From the Sopranos Family Cookbook) from Food.com: It's from the sopranos cookbook but I use my own Sunday Gravy (Real Italian Spaghetti Sauce)and Meatballs and it is the best food in the world there aren't words to describe it!
There are some easy Italian recipes for Baked Ziti, but going the easy way leads to a dry and bland result! Sure, this 'easy' dinner recipe has a lot of steps - we'll be making 2 different kinds of homemade sauce – but none of those steps are difficult, and after the first few attempts you'll be able to turn this out in no time at all! The key to the great taste of this Baked Ziti recipe is in the sauce! We use two different kinds of canned tomatoes for the Tomato Sauce, as well!
We know ricotta is a traditional addition, but it has a tendency to get dry and grainy when baked. Our update uses a creamy Parmesan béchamel, in addition to a tangy tomato sauce, which together make for a super flavorful finished dish—that won’t dry out in the oven.
Looking for a way to use up that leftover Tomato Sauce you made the other day? What better way than to try this ziti recipe! You can use canned sauce, but homemade is always better! Hope you enjoy this recipe! My kids practically grew up on it
