Skillet Baked Ziti ~ page 140

Another recipe that we loved! I was too busy today with a sick kid to ever get the chicken thawed out that I was gonna bake with this, so we had a meatless dinner and there were no complaints. It reminded me of Chicken Parmesan without the chicken! I think you could easily add meat to this if you wanted. The only thing I changed was to add 1/2 more mozzarella cheese on top. 1 cup seemed skimpy. Oh, they did say to use a 12 inch non stick skillet, I just don't like baking in Teflon at a high temps, so I used a stainless skillet and had no problems at all with sticking. I did set the timer and it took me 39 minutes! That might have been because I was cleaning up as I was going. I'm sure in their test kitchen they leave a big mess since they have a crew to clean up after them! Now that I have made it, I bet the next time I could do it in 30 min!
My girls have it a thumbs up as they licked their bowls! --Carissa
