The Night the Lights Went Out in Jersey Baked Ziti

The Sopranos may or may not have disappointed last night, depending on who you talk to, but my baked Ziti definitely didn’t. No wonder Tony Soprano is so fat. This dish has some serious cheese in it. With the exception of the spicy turkey sausage I used, I think even Carmela would have approved, but really the biggest compliment to any cook is when someone asks for seconds.With Frank Sinatra crooning in the background, I followed Robin Miller’s basic recipe and ingredient list with the following changes: I used fresh herbs and garlic instead of dried, spicy sausage instead of sweet, and Pastene Kitchen Ready Tomatoes (my personal favorites to make sauce with) instead of the “diced tomatoes with seasoning” — that would have just been gross. Never buy canned tomatoes with extras (celery, spices etc…) Yuck!I can’t wait to eat the leftovers for dinner tonight! Now, am I the only one who thought that their DVR broke or cut off the end of the episode when the screen went blank? I wonder if the screams of HBO users across the country could be heard from space…
