Mix in the cheese and continue cooking, stirring constantly until cheese is melted. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

Roll the pizza dough up starting from a long side, arranging and finishing so the seem side is down.

Greek Baked Ziti Recipe

Greek Baked Ziti

I was looking for a casserole recipe that was a little different and I came across this Greek Baked Ziti Recipe. There is a little bit of prep time involved but it is well worth the effort. The recipe is layered with a creamy cheese sauce mixed into the Ziti at the bottom of the dish which gives this casserole a unique texture. The addition of the cinnamon make me a little nervous because I thought that seasoning may dominate the dish – but there is just enough so you just get a light hint of the cinnamon.

If you’re looking for a one dish meal that’s a little different give this one a try, it’s really good; my wife loved it! This is a large recipe and would be great for a pot luck, or graduation party dish.

Add the burger to the onion mixture and cook burger until no longer pink inside – stirring and breaking up the burger as you cook; drain any excess fat.
