This ziti recipe was another find from my Gooseberry Patch Homestyle Family Favorites Cookbook.  I did opt to use dried onion as you know my dislike of working with fresh onion.  And obviously, being titled ‘Company Baked Ziti,’ it made an awful lot for just me and my husband.  But now we can note that it sure does reheat well.

Fresh from the oven!

Overall it was pretty darn good and very filling.  Pair with a salad with some homemade croutons and you’ve got a great meal!
