I love this recipe. Almost like my baked ziti – this is a go to recipe, make ahead, that I know will turn out great and is somewhat healthy (only 4 WW points for 1/12th of the pan).
As I told my friend Kevin and Jamie Bowers tonight – Martha Shinn gave me this recipe. My junior year of college at Flagler in St. Augustine, Martha (the Youth Ministries director, boss, and friend) had all the single girls over for a V-day dinner. So sweet. This is the main dish she made. I’ve been making it since. I love it. And it is so easy and you have to make it ahead – so you aren’t scrambling around right before you have dinner guests.
