Baked Ziti Recipe

Don’t know what to make for dinner tonight? How about baked Ziti?!

To make baked Ziti, you will need the following ingredients:

1 lb box Ziti pasta
(if you can’t find Ziti, you can use any shape you want!)
1 quart marinara (click here for easy marinara recipe)
6 oz provolone cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese

1 1/2 cup sour cream or ricotta cheese (I prefer sour cream)
1 egg (If you are using ricotta)
2 tbs parsley
grated Parmesan cheese (Please use fresh! Not canned!)
1 lb chopped Italian meatballs or browned ground beef

Boil your pasta to Al Dente (about 7 min)

Drain

Add your chopped meatballs or browned ground beef to the marinara and use half of the sauce (2 cups) to cover the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish.

Put half of the cooked pasta on top of the meat sauce.
Cover the pasta with half the provolone slices.

Spread sour cream or ricotta mixture over provolone.

Now add 2 cups of mozzarella and the Parmesan. Repeat layers.


Bake uncovered in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 30 – 35 min

Time to eat!
