On the heels of Mother’s Day, we thought it would be fun to share a recipe from my Mom. I use the term recipe liberally because, as Mom says, this is a recipe that is just thrown together. But as I always tell Mom whenever she says that to us, even her just thrown together meals are fantastic.
Mom’s Baked Ziti is pretty straight forward. In fact the hardest part of this recipe was figuring out what the measurements were for the ingredients because it changes every time, both when Mom makes it and when we do. You know how it goes, one of those recipes that you just eyeball.
Mom’s Baked Ziti was a classic dish growing up, and still is, here in our Northern NJ part Italian (100% mutt) household. Having moved out, and now with a family of my own, I still bake Mom’s Baked Ziti, just the way she does; throwing it all together, eyeballing it. It’s perfect for those week nights when it’s just too busy to spend much time cooking.
No matter how crazy it was Mom (and with 7 kids I’m sure it was quite crazy) Mom always had a home cooked meal on the table. I don’t know how she did it, but she did. Moms really are super heroes, aren’t they?
Happy Mother’s Day (again) Mom. This thrown together post is for you
