Meat Free Monday: Easy Baked Ziti

Baked Ziti

I love today’s recipe… partially because the kids love it, partially because it’s so yummy… but mostly because I never have to make it.  This is my husband’s signature dish.  Yep he makes dinner.  Actually he makes most of the meals in our house.  I wish I could say it’s because I get home from work so much later than he does (which I do)…. but the truth is I think he likes to cook more than I do.  I like to experiment and make new dishes… but once I’ve made them I’m onto the next thing.

Oh and in case I haven’t sold you on this dish already with the photo and telling you how yummy it is.. another great thing about it is —-> you just dump everything into a pan and cook it… LOVE THAT!

Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package ziti pasta
  • 16 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup Mozzarella
  • 1 egg, beaten (I use just the egg white)
  • 1  jar spaghetti sauce ( I use organic)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add ziti and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and rinse.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix ziti, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, egg and spaghetti sauce.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking dish and spoon in ziti mixture. Top with Parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes; let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
