Baked Ziti

This is a new recipe that I tried.  I was looking to some pasta dishes to make and this one popped up.  This was easy inexpensive and very good.  This recipe is a winner in my house.

I made two batches of this and froze one for a later time.  I love when I can put away a meal for later.  It just make life so much easier after a long work day.
