Recipe: Baked Ziti with Sausage
Baked ziti is one of the easiest Italian-meets-busy evening dinner dishes, and we find ourselves reaching for the recipe often (not necessarily reaching, though, as we have memorized the recipe by now) This spin on classic baked ziti call for pancetta, or cured pork belly, which is the same thing as bacon without the smoke. It adds pure flavor to this dish, and you can find it in the deli case of most supermarkets. Another ingredient in this recipe is native to Italy—San Marzano tomatoes, which are also known for their sweet flavor. Consider trying them in place of regular crushed tomatoes in the sauce.
