Is baked ziti just a way of saying " I was too lazy to make lasagna?" Or do you prefer baked ziti?
I clicked "LIKE" 'cause I LIKE!
Pasta + cheese+ sauce + meat ... All the same ...
I want some now. Either one!
I'll take baked ziti over lasagna any day.
Either is fine with me.
I feel like the odd man out again, but I like what I like. Eggplant lasagna! I try to restrict carbohydrates and try my best not to consume empty calories. Making a lasagna using thin sliced eggplant in place of the pasta gives me the taste I crave without more carbs than I need. I also really enjoy eggplant almost any way it's prepared. It's more work this way but well worth the effort.
I don’t think I had ever heard of eggplant lasagna. How many eggplants would you need for a 9x13 inch pan of lasagna?
I'm happy to get a frozen lasagna from Costco (meat or veggie) and eat the entire thing over the course of a few days.
I’m a lasagna guy.
I prefer vegetarian, though I ain’t one.
Thanks for listening.
Let's say twice as many as you think you need. Unlike lasagna noodles, eggplant will compress a little as you load ricotta, ground meat, and sausage over it. Lightly fry eggplant slices in no more olive oil than necessary to start. Then build a lasagna layer by layer the same way you would with lasagna noodles. Stop building when you run out of something, food or space. I'm not a professional chef or musician. I just go with the flow. In real life, I'm an engineer. If anyone who reported to me built instruments the way I cook he'd be looking for a job the next day.
Baked Ziti for me! Would not turn either down, but prefer the Ziti - especially with added sausage!
Penne al Arrabbiata please...
They are not the same and it is more than the location of the cheese.
Ziti is my preference.
I love both. It does seem harder to make lasagna, so I agree with OP. Eggplant lasagna is to die for. It's not greasy like the kind with meat.
I think my Italian mother-in-law would beat somebody with her pasta rolling pin if they said that in her kitchen!!!!
Lasagna, if only for the ricotta.
Lasagna gets my vote, but I've been working in 94 degree heat so I'll pass.
