    Then I would need to know the original yield of the recipe, wouldn't I, and
    it doesn't give one, as I already pointed out.

    I make a baked ziti which is basically lasagna but with different pasta,
    less structural order, and no ricotta. Turns out pretty good, doesn't
    last long in our house. I'm also kinda meh about ricotta.

    Why do people change the most basic ingredients and then still try to keep
    the name of the preparation?

    It's not lasagna. It's a cheesy pasta bake. Or something. But ziti mixed
    with stuff in a pan is not lasagna.

    I told you to read the other recipe and use your calculator since you
    can't seem to estimate it in your head.

    That was a lot of help. I can find a recipe on my own. I can also do math
    strings in my head faster than you can probably imagine. But never mind, I'm
    going to make creme fraische instead.

    these words, "but" and "different" -- they do have meanings, you might

    You wrote "...is basically a lasagna" where "lasagna" is the subject. Now I
    understand why you're mentally stuck in 4th grade. You never learned
    English. You said it was lasagna, then you told us how you screwed it up and
    made something else which is not lasagna. Note that everyone else was
    actually talking about lasagna, not noodles in glop.

    What do you think the phrase "x is basically y" means?

    I'd link you to a definition of "basic" but I'm sure it would slough off.

    Well since ya don't know I'll tell ya.

    x and y are two different things, but they share significant
    similarities, which is basically true for ziti and lasagna.

    Wrong. Completely off the rails. But it's a waste of time trying to change
    someone's alternative reality.

    Never mind.

    No really, they are pasta and sauce, baked. Other than arrangement
    and the type of pasta there is no difference.

    If that web site allowed comments I would definitely point out the

    there's not much point; it would be like scolding a gravestone.
