Happy Saturday everyone! A couple days ago, I made this very yummy and easy meal. I have made baked ziti a few times on the blog. On the weekends I usually make the sauce all afternoon and add it to my ground beef/sausage/veggie mixture and pasta. Well, Publix was having a BOGO on one of my favorite jarred sauces, so I decided to let the good people of Bertoli do all the work this time.
Easy Baked Ziti
Ingredientssausage (sub in ground beef or leave out the meat to make it vegetarian)
1 box of ziti noodles -or what ever tube shaped pasta you like
1 jars of your favorite pasta sauce- I used Bertoli- marinara and 3 cheese
2 med. bags or 1 large bag of mozzarella or Italian Cheese Blend
2 tablespoons Italian Seasoning (oregano, marjarum, thyme, etc)
2 teaspoons onion powder and garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350.
Brown your meat and add all your seasonings. Drain grease out of meat.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil- salt the water liberally
Assemble in a large casserole pan layering sauce, pasta, meat, and cheese.
Cook for about 30 minutes or until cheese is melting and turning that yummy brown color.
Lots of leftovers!
