Baked Ziti

It smells like garlic up in here…often

Damn Delicious‼️ 😍  😋 *Note to self

No recipe; just cooked ziti, made a meat sauce and have CHEESE!  🧀🍅

Then I layered pasta, cheese [mozzarella(both fresh AND shredded), Parmigiano-Reggiano & ricotta] and sauce 🥫again with pasta, sauce and top with cheese.

Bake at 375° for …20 – 30 minutes 😉


*Note – it was so good that I don’t want to forget exactly what I did 🤭 cook seasoned ground beef, clear center in pan and add diced onion, then fresh minced garlic, sauté until softened. Add a jar of Prego basil & garlic tomato sauce, a can of Hunt’s tomato sauce, dried oregano, dried basil, salt & freshly ground mixed-color peppercorns, a good pinch of sugar, taste for seasoning adjustment. Cook ziti according to package directions. After straining, add enough sauce to pasta so that it’s not dry or too wet/saucy. Put sauce in bottom of oven dish, then half of pasta, top with fresh mozzarella, Shredded mozzarella, ricotta and Parmigiano Reggiano, a thin (? although meaty 😜) layer of sauce, the remaining mozzarella and parm. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes (in convection oven), could be up to 30 minutes depending on your oven. Let rest a few minutes before serving. Add more parm on servings, optional 🧀😁
