I'm only now figuring out what people mean when they talk about baked ziti. I didn't grow up with it and I don't know anyone who cooks it (or talks about it, maybe).
As far as I can tell, it's the same ingredients as lasagna except with a chunky pasta and everything mixed together - same flavors, just no tedious layers. So instead of baking a recipe in a 9x13, I divide it between 2 square pans and freeze one for a future meal.
I served it with green salad and Italian bread. We have salads with most every meal right now because of the packet of lettuce seeds my husband planted!
