Looking for your best Thanksgiving baked ziti recipe. Yes, there are many people, I understand, for whom baked ziti are an essential component of every Thanksgiving menu. I knew 2 such people, years ago; one was from Staten Island, one from Brooklyn. Their baked ziti were amazing. I was actually present in the same church kitchen where and when they made it, but I was busy preparing or supervising the creation of all of the other items on the menu, so I failed to make any notes about how they made it. I told the story to my sons and the one who'll be here for T-Day exclaimed that he loves baked ziti. So baked ziti are on the menu! Thanks, all. ;o)
