Baked Ziti I
The first time I made this, I didn't quite pay attention to the amount of sauce and it ended up not saucy enough (according to my husband) and something in the flavor was just missing.

Chef John's Ricotta Meatballs
I've mad this twice now. The first time I neglected the egg. That was a disaster. They all fell apart. I've never had that problem with my meatballs before but I imagine that's because of the ricotta. I also had a giant pack of meat so the amount of balls was overwhelming for me. The second time I made these almost exactly as described. The only changes were no parsley, oregano instead. Both times I used ground turkey. This is amazingly moist and flavorful. Chef John never fails. I've been following his recipes since well before he joined allrecipes. He never disappoints.

Parmesan Brussels Sprouts
I am not a fan of Brussel sprouts but my husband is and he is the pickiest eater in the universe. I figured I will try this. I cheated with the frozen steamer bag of Brussel sprouts. I heated those with the directions on the bag then through them into a steaming hot pan with half the butter suggested. The Parmesan adds such a yummy bonus here. I was very impressed and hubby was popping these like chips.
