5 Cheese Baked Ziti Pasta Recipe with Homestyle Sauce
At our house, we are huge fans of pasta. It’s by far our favorite kind of food, everyone loves it and eats it so well. The best part about pasta is that there is so many varieties so my family doesn’t just get sick and bored of one dish. And I love of times I can take one dish and change it up a little bit and it’s like a whole new meal that I know my family will love! Our favorite kind of sauce is definitely the traditional spaghetti sauce so when I found out that Ragu came out with a new line of Homestyle sauces, I was super excited about trying them out! They are thicker and heartier and they taste like homemade sauce! The taste and the texture of it brought me back to when I was growing up and the homemade sauce that my mom made for spaghetti, it was so good! I picked up a bottle of the new sauce and made a 5 cheese baked ziti with it and it was sooooo good. My whole family loved it and it was so easy to make! We will definitely be making this dish lots!
