Baked Ziti with Turkey Mushroom Marsala
This Thanksgiving pasta bake recipe is the ultimate side dish!
Cooking Tip: Fall is peak mushroom season! This recipe uses cremini mushrooms which have a mild earthy flavor. The key to caramelizing mushrooms is to pat them dry after washing, and let them rest on a towel. Any moisture on the mushroom makes it more difficult to caramelize. When the mushrooms are done, their texture will be almost meaty!
