Creamy Baked Ziti

A friend of mine recently had a baby and I was planning to take her dinner. I wanted to try something different than I normally take and I thought baked ziti would work perfectly and travel well. I divided this recipe and baked it in two 8x8 dishes so that we could have some for dinner also. This was so creamy, comforting, and delicious!

Hope you all had a Blessed and Happy Easter! Our church had services on Saturday, so we opted to go then and the music and worship were so wonderful!
