Here are the ingredients:
- 1 1/2 lbs ziti, uncooked
- 1 jar favorite tomato sauce (I used Bertolli Marinara)
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 15 oz container part-skim ricotta cheese
- 2 cups or so of shredded mozzarella
- Parmesan cheese
Here's what I did:
I cooked the pasta until it was just about done. A bit past al dente. Then, drained the pasta. I put the pasta back into the pot I cooked it in and added the sauce, diced tomatoes, ricotta and about a cup or so of shredded mozarella. Just stir this up until it is well mixed. I then poured the entire pasta mixture into a large baking dish that I had sprayed with cooking spray. Then, topped the pasta cheesy goodness with more mozarella and grated Parmesan cheese. I baked it at 350 for 25 minutes (or until the cheese is melted and looks yummy.)
Here's what it looked like:
Did I enjoy it? I did. It was quite tasty!
Would I recommend it? I would!
Will I make it again? I will. I think I will put more sauce in it the next time I make it though. And I will use a different sauce...still a marinara, just not the Bertolli that I used in this batch.
If you make it, or if you have had it, let me know what you think! Or let me know if you do a variation on it...I'm always looking for new things to cook!!!
