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!
:worship:You know how this works by now Trlsmn, I go nuts until I get you to capitulate and give me the recipe so I can at least eat with more than my eyes, although I can almost smell it looking at your post. So picture in your mind,,, I'm on a knee begging. If that isnt enough, here goes,,, pretty please, pretty please, pretty please? I'll take it in a pm and will swear to secrecy if need be!:thankyou:
Three, count em, three pretty please's! So what does a guy gotta do?:eatpop:
I'm off to school now John, but I promise I will write this recipe up very soon.
And the anticipation will make the meal all the better. Thanks so much and enjoy school.

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.
