Baked ziti is a baked casserole dish made with ziti macaroni and sauce characteristic of Italian-American cuisine. It is similar to pasta al forno.

In many recipes, the ziti are first cooked separately while a tomato and cheese sauce is prepared, which may include meat, sausage, mushrooms, peppers, onions, and more. The cooked and drained ziti are then combined with the cooked sauce, which may be layered with additional varieties of cheeses, baked in the oven, and served hot.

Baked ziti has been characterized as a dish that "has remained a standby for generations" in Italian-American homes and restaurants.[1]
