    Mama mia! Molto bene! Not sure how you do it, but I like to add hard boiled egg and some sliced salami to mine. Baked ziti has been a staple in my life since I was just a wee bambino.

    Mouth - drooling. Enjoy!

    Trlsmn, Thank you so much! I'll try not to butcher it. I hope some good lean ground Elk will suffice? As I've said before, you kill me brother! Thank you again. John.

    For a slightly different flavor, substitute ground sausage for ground beef.

    And don't ever forget the bacon! Cut bacon up into bacon bits size, mix it in with everything else.
