Ziti Lasagna

Healthy ZITI?! Who knew?! My aunt Dale makes the most amazing baked ziti dish, but downfall, it’s so high in points. I put my Allie Carte spin on it and made a lower point version, without sparing any taste or flavor! I even added tons of protein to the dish to stay full and satisfied. It was so hard to stop at just one serving, this stuff is GOOD!
