Ryan’s Famous Baked Ziti

As I mentioned earlier, last week we had some friends over for dinner and as promised here is the recipe for our main course, one-skillet baked ziti. It is Ryan’s go to recipe whenever we have dinner guests. It is easy and delicious, makes enough to feed about six adults, and always goes over well, even with picky eaters. The recipe originally comes from America’s Test Kitchen, but we wrote it down ourselves from the TV broadcast, so I don’t feel guilty sharing it here.
