Baked Ziti with Sausage

Baked Ziti with Sausage
Southern Living

Baked ziti is one of the easiest Italian-meets-busy evening dinner dishes, and we find ourselves reaching for the recipe often. This spin on classic baked ziti calls 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.

Pretty much anything goes in this catch-all cobbler, which means it is great to make when you’re cleaning out the cabinets and want to throw it all in a dish that your hungry family will enjoy for supper. We made our cobbler with ham, sweet peas, mushrooms, carrots, and a flaky piecrust. We love how practical it is, along with the elegance of the basketweave crust.

Get your greens right alongside biscuits and sausage-studded gravy. If you can find it, smoked sausage, such as Conecuh, adds a rich smokiness to the white gravy. The drop biscuits are designed to be a crumbly hybrid of the South's two favorite breads: biscuits and cornbread.
