Ziti Supper for Two

 Ziti Supper for Two
For this fabulous, fuss-free dish, Elaine Spevak of Jacksonville, Florida turns to store-bought spaghetti sauce, then dresses it up with crisp veggies, olives, fresh parsley and cheese. The result? A healthy entree that’s “quick to prepare and sure to please,” she reports. “This is my very favorite pasta dish.”
