Healthy version of baked zitti loaded with veggies...... Baked ziti doesn't have to be over-loaded with cheese to taste good! This recipe has a creamy sauce, thanks to the addition of fat-free ricotta, and lots of sauteed veggies.
We know ricotta is a traditional addition, but it has a tendency to get dry and grainy when baked. Our update uses a creamy Parmesan béchamel, in addition to a tangy tomato sauce, which together make for a super flavorful finished dish—that won’t dry out in the oven.
