We've arrived in one of the best seasons of the year — no, I don't mean the holiday season, which is wrapping up with today's New Year's Day parties. Instead, I'm talking about comfort-food season, which celebrates all things cheesy, creamy, hearty and oh so decadent. Ease your way into 2017 and keep warm all winter long with piping-hot comfort food, like the recipe featured in this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week. The Pioneer Woman's fuss-free Baked Ziti is layered with a gooey mozzarella mixture, a beefy meat sauce and, of course, plenty of pasta. This top-rated casserole yields a whopping 12 servings, so keep it in mind when you're planning for a crowd.
