Veggie recipe

So I just finished reading some comments and I've been requested to post some vegetarian recipes. Well since I was just blogging about my baked ziti, here it is!"

1 box of ziti (with ridges)
1 28oz can of whole peeled tomatoes - roughly chopped
1 140z can of crushed tomoatoes
*Try to use san marzano for the tomatoes
Garlic-roughly chopped (about 3 cloves)
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 bag of shredded mozzarella
1 cup of shredded parmesan cheese            

Preheat oven to 350.
Cook pasta; slightly undercooked.
In saucepan, sautee garlic in some olive oil, then add both cans of tomatoes; simmer 10 mins then add basil
In another saucepan, melt the butter then whisk in the flour for about 1 min or 2. Add Milk slowly and grate some of the nutmeg in. Keep whisking until it thickens; about 4 min
When pasta is done, drain and put into a 13x9 pan
Pour tomato sauce over pasta, and mix well
Pour bechamel sauce over top and then top off with both cheeses
Bake for about 20 min

There really is never any left. I was so mad when I came out from putting Molly to bed when we were at Annie's! There was just a square inch left :(
Anyway, hoorah for biggiefood surfacing!
Waiting for a pic of the ziti. Hope you get the cross section unlike me.
