Baked Ziti Soup

On a bitter cold winter evening there is just nothing better than a hot bowl of soup to warm you up❤

So tonight is that night!!!! When our temps didnt make it out of the 20s today, yes tonight is a perfect night for soup!

I love to experiment with recipes creating my own recipe

I had seen on instagram a yummy soup, called Lasagna soup, it intrigued me and I looked it up.

Using what I had on hand I created my own and it quickly became “baked Ziti” instead of “lasagna” soup

  • 2 1/2 cups ziti noodles

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
