|Baked Ziti is one of the most popular baked pasta dishes|
|Fresh, home-made tomato gravy (or sauce) is the key to a great ziti|
There are many ways to assemble the ziti in the baking dish- many people find it easier to mix their cheeses in a separate bowl, others like their cheeses in clumps. I like mine mixed fairly well, and I find it easiest to mix everything right in the baking dish. I'll start with a layer of gravy on the bottom- this will help make sure that the pasta is well lubricated, and will not stick on the bottom.

|Cover your ziti with a reasonable amount of mozzarella, and it's ready for the oven.|
