Foodie Friday: veggie baked ziti

One of the hardest parts about the weather getting warmer is finding recipes to work with. I love a good pasta dish but they can be too heavy (and hello? a stove only adds to the sweltering heat) and I only really like one pasta salad dish (thanks gram!).

I came across this recipe from Sometimes Sweet and just had to give it a try. It’s simple, and uses so many veggies!

The only changes I made..

I used gluten free brown rice pasta (You can get it at Trader Joes and it’s delicious!)
Fat free ricotta cheese
Skim milk mozzarella

I’m pretty much in love with any dish you can throw all the ingredients into one pan, bake it, and eat it. Makes my job cooking it that much easier.

Usually when I’m in the kitchen I have at least one little shadow watching my every move hoping I drop at least a piece of what I’m making.

Caught in the begging act! Thankfully I finished baking this before Kh got home, or else all of the ingredients really would have been eaten. The dish was such a big hit, Kh obsessed about it until it was all gone. She didn’t even bother to heat it up, it was that delicious.
