Alfredo Marinara Baked Ziti Recipe

Sometimes you just need a simple pasta recipe. Ah, who am I kidding? All I ever cook are easy recipes! If I could make spaghetti for every meal, I totally would.

Do you enjoy lasagna but dislike the hassle? Instead, make baked ziti! It resembles a traditional lasagna casserole in many ways, but it’s simpler to cook and doesn’t have as many layers or broken noodles. It’s ideal for a weeknight or weekend lunch, or you can bring it to a potluck as a hot dish.

Marinara Alfredo Baked Ziti is an easy family pasta dish that combines the bright, tomato taste of marinara with rich, cheesy alfredo sauce to create the creamiest comfort food around. It’s sad to say that because it’s cheesy as it is, it could not count as a vegetarian recipe. You should definitely try it out!
