I like this recipe and tried it two nights ago when I first found your blog… in my family we’re not as big of fans of cream sauces so I did a combination of the traditional tomato sauce, mixing the ziti all up in that, and then pouring the creamy sauce over the top of the tomato ziti. It came out WAY more moist than my baked ziti normally does. Thanks for the recipe!!

Thanks for the recipe! We also added hamburger with onion, garlic, and italian seasoning, which was very yummy!

We loved this…. added a dash of grated nutmeg to the sauce. Also added about 1 lb. of seasoned ground beef (used onion & garlic powder, s/p, italian seasoning, and once browned added 8 oz. tomato sauce then drained. Put white sauce with noodles, then added beef – mixed and put in casserole dish and topped with cheeses – mozzarella blended with parmesan romano (few Tbsp) and 2 tsp italian seasoning. Was so delicious. Only added about 2.50 to the cost and stretches the meal to serve more or for left overs. Such delicious flavor…Thanks for the inspiration. :) Love this site!

I just made this recipe today! The white sauce I thought was a bit bland, but nothing some garlic and salt and pepper can’t fix! I got your cookbook for Christmas and am very excited to start using it more!
