Baked Ziti

As promised, Baked Ziti.

I’m sorry, I had intended for this post to come much sooner than it did, but that’s just how my life is.

Seriously, though, there are probably better uses of your time.

So, without any more ado, here is how you make my baked ziti.

Easiest. Chicken. Ever.

Oh my.  It’s only 1:37 and it’s already been quite a day. I should have known. Waking up to snow on April 20th is a terrible omen.

So. I’ll admit I like to make fancy meals for people.  This is not one of those meals. This is simple and delicious and sooo not fancy.

There are a lot of Shepherd’s Pie recipes out there.  This one is really easy, and you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already.

Porcupine Meatballs

Note: there are no porcupines used in these meatballs, so if you were excited that you finally found a use for that porcupine carcass in your garage, I’m sorry.
This is one of my grandma’s recipes. Therefore, it is delicious. It’s homey with a twist. Some good ol’ comfort food.
