Make-ahead Pasta Menu

The Best Baked Ziti, Caesar salad, No-Fail French Bread, roasted veggies, Fresh Strawberry Pie. I love this menu because almost everything can be made the day before and simply tossed, baked and chilled before serving! Make the pie crust a day (or two) ahead, then fill on the day of serving.
