The Pioneer Woman's baked ziti recipe was created by Ree Drummond, a blogger and Food Network show host. The recipe was featured on the show "The Pioneer Woman" during the episode entitled "Us and Them."
The baked ziti featured on The Pioneer Woman website features mostaciolli, not ziti. The accompanying recipe calls for either. The recipe featured on the Food Network lists ziti as an ingredient, but not mostaciolli. Aside from that, the recipes are identical.
Ree Drummond proclaims herself a "spoiled city girl" turned "domestic country wife." Drummond's Food Network TV show focuses on cooking, while her website covers a range of topics including cooking, photography, home schooling, and home and garden tips.
