Baked Ziti Skillet in 25 Minutes

25-Minute Baked Ziti Skillet is inspired by my mom and her love of simple dinners and special occasions, but also my need to have fewer dishes to wash.  This entire recipe is prepared in one pan and there is enough inactive cook time that you can have your entire kitchen cleaned when you put dinner on the table!

One skillet meals are a new favorite of mine.  I love taking a complicated meal and turning it into a one skillet meal in 30 minutes.  After spectacularly creating a one skillet ravioli meal and a one skillet lasagna, my favorite baked ziti has been transformed into a skillet and is ready in just 25 minutes.

It is truly magical with all the baked ziti flavor and very little clean up.  One skillet and 25 minutes is just about heaven to me, but just wait until you bite into it!

With love from our Kitchen Table to yours.  XOXO

  5. Can you use beef instead of sausage?

    1. Absolutely, however you will need to add seasoning. The sausage adds a great deal of flavor so you will need to compensate for that. I would add a pinch of fennel seeds, rosemary, sage and 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes. Enjoy!

  6. Have made your Baked Ziti but being there's just the 2 of us (hubby and myself) I cut recipe in half and also used 1/2 sausage and 1/2 hamburger and used my own seasonings. Delicious!
