This dish is simple, familiar and so delicious — the very definition of crowd-pleasing comfort food! Tender ziti pasta is combined with our slow-cooked tomato sauce and mild, creamy mozzarella cheese in our convenient heatable tray. We also send whipped ricotta to dollop on top of the dish before popping it into the oven. The ricotta will melt into the pasta, making it even more delicious. There's also a dish of extra sauce for those who want it.
