Last night I made the Zippy Ziti from this week's menu and it was very yummy. In fact Big Daddy said it was definitely a rotation recipe...you know one of the ol' standbys that you make when you don't know what else to make and most of the ingredients are things I have usually have in my pantry.
There were a few changes I will be making the next time I make it.
8 oz pkg of ziti, uncooked
2 C. frozen broccoli cuts - I will be adding at least twice as much.
1 clove garlic, minced - I will be doubling this also
1 C. alfredo sauce - I added 2 cups and it was just about right
14 1/2 oz can Italian-style diced tomatoes
2 C. mozzarella cheese
2 Tbsp. Italian style bread crumbs - Everyone said it needed more breadcrumbs on the top.
2 tsp. butter, melted
Prepare ziti according to package directions; add broccoli during last minute of cooking time. Drain; add garlic, alfredo sauce, tomatoes and cheese, mixing well. Spoon into a casserole dish; set aside. Toss bread crumbs with butter; sprinkle over ziti. Bake at 350 degrees about 20-30 minutes, until top is golden. Makes 4-6 servings.
So did anyone else try it? Any changes you will be making to the recipe?
Now I am going to grab a book and take it easy for the rest of the day. I've felt like I might be catching a bug for the last couple of days. I have been having chills and felt a little dizzy (well more that usual) and today I feel like I have been ran over by a truck. I don't have anywhere I need to be and no therapist for Ham so it is a good day to rest and get better.
