One more time; a bird’s eye quick video clip complete with Italian tunes cajoled me into assembling 12 Tomatoes Baked Ziti in the slow cooker.

I followed instructions and painted butter on the inside of the pot before assembling layers of marinara, ricotta mixture, pasta, and cheese.

A little tip I learned from a chef here-- Place a cartouche (a fancy name for a piece of parchment paper) over the pasta to help contain the moisture.

After four hours on high, load on the final cheese layer and hit the road...

Remember those crazy days that stretch from May until the school bell rings (or buzzes) in June announcing –it’s over.

Ultimately, this yummy crock of pasta was on call dishing out comfort in waves to my kiddos stretching 4 o’clock, after volleyball practice until 9ish when Ty and Luke cleaned up the toasty edges—so I heard.
