Baked Ziti

09Sep09

I’ve always been a fan of baked ziti…well really just about any baked pasta dish.  I mean who doesn’t enjoy pasta smothered with cheese?!  This recipe promised a flavorful dish without the rubbery cheese, grainy sauce, and mushy noodles found in many other baked ziti recipes.  It definitely lived up to those expectations!  I think […]


Well what can I say, I have once again fallen off of the food blogging bandwagon.  Sorry about that folks, somewhere in between my board exam, vacation, and the start of my third year rotations blogging found itself on the back burner.  But I am happy to report that I am back and to start […]
