In this week's edition of "Random Things You Should Know About Me" (that's not a thing), I love pretending that I'm an Italian grandmother. I like to imagine myself slaving away in the kitchen all day, making family favorite recipes I know by heart, adding my secret components that I'll only tell one deserving grandchild before I die (the one who sends me the most text messages). Until I reach that status, I will try out recipes online that only take an hour from start to finish. Like this Baked Ziti, made with love and tons of cheese. If you're ever cooking for a crowd, check out The Pioneer Woman's recipes. She often times cooks for small armies, and her food is divine. I made this with just sausage, and otherwise followed the recipe to a T. My one note: go splurge on good cheese at a local cheese shop or Italian market, you won't regret it.
Now get out of my kitchen before I spank you!
(That's how they talk, right?)
Oh, hello Ricotta and Parmesan and Mozzarella and Egg.
Leftovers for days...
