Rock The genie is out of the bottle. Guns exist. We have to live with them. Getting rid of them is NOT an option.

Susan | 6406 comments Oh, I have never put sour cream in my baked ziti. Does it make the sauce creamy, Z to the T?


message 3: by Rock (new)

Rock In an unrelated story...left-wing pundit Thom Hartman claims that Baked ziti doesn't kill people. Z to the T kills people...with kindness...

The problem with baked ziti is the pan is so hard to clean.

Here is a Youtube of someone cleaning an aluminum pan with baked on cooking residue. I hope this video will help me.

We need to move this thread to food!

Baked ziti is absolutely one of my favorite foods.


message 7: by Susan (new)

Susan | 6406 comments ^Yes, indeed!

I would like to try cottage cheese in place of ricotta, as well. Thank you, Zardoz and Misha for the ideas. LG, I agree, the pan is so terribly hard to clean.

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17333 comments Mod
Or can't you line the pan with foil?


message 9: by Lobstergirl, el principe (new)

Sometimes when I feel too lazy to clean a pan I just dump it over the fence into my neighbor's yard.

Is that bad?

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17333 comments Mod
Is what bad?


message 12: by Susan (new)

Susan | 6406 comments Pyrex makes such nice bakeware. I also love my cuisinart dishes for just such a recipe.

I like the big heavy cast iron ones that come in bright colors. What are those called? They're super pricey and I got about three small baking dishes as wedding gifts, and then one big dutch oven for christmas last year.


message 14: by Susan (new)

Susan | 6406 comments Oh, those are very nice.

Yes, that's LeCreuset. Too fucking heavy. Pretty, but you need to work on your bench press before you can use them.


message 18: by Susan (new)

Susan | 6406 comments I would say depends on if you like your pan or not. My one neighbor would most likely clean the pan and send it back over the fence. The other neighbor, not so much.

Lift LeCreuset using your legs.

Can I be honest? I don't like the word "Pam." It's always turned me off to that particular product.

After I cleaned my stovetop the last time, I lined the burners (gas burners) with aluminum foil. I was so tired of cleaning the baked on messes. It's working really well, I have zero messes now.


message 22: by Susan (new)

Susan | 6406 comments Cooking spray, then.

I have a big cookie sheet that is getting ready to fly into the neighbor's yard. I've been putting off cleaning it for, like, 8 months.

Susan | 6406 comments I have two Calphalon pans. Those are some heavy f'ers.


message 26: by Lobstergirl, el principe (new)

Lobstergirl | 24262 comments Mod
I have one cast iron frying pan which I hardly ever use, and a big Calphalon frying pan (and a smaller Calphalon frying pan). I love Calphalon. It's good quality and a workhorse. They discontinued the style I had been buying, assholes.

Unfortunately one of my Calphalon cookpots has some small dents in the side from a day several years ago when I went into a bit of a rage.

Not nearly as heavy as LeCreuset. Unless the ones you have are huge. Even so, I don't see how they could be as heavy.

Prove it.

I agree they are not as heavy. Yes, I have a giant Calphalon pan. Actually, it sounds like I might have the same small/large that you have. I love them. Best pans I own. I hate it when you find something you love and they discontinue it. ASS HOLES.

message 48: by Meels (new)

Meels (amelia) Cottage cheese as a substitute for ricotta is sacrilege!


message 49: by Susan (new)

Susan | 6406 comments I will try it in my ziti next time I make it. Thank you for the tip.

I have used it one time in my mac-n-cheese but I normally only put in cream cheese or Laughing Cow light in the cheesy sauce with a combination of other cheeses. I always have those on hand and seldom have sour cream.

I like humble delicacies.


message 50: by Susan (new)

Susan | 6406 comments Isn't using cottage cheese better for you, anyways?
