Baked Ziti is an easy and inexpensive dish to make. I truly do mean easy! You can choose to make it meatless (which I did for this recipe) or get on with your meat-loving self and add a meat of your choice to the recipe. The spaghetti sauce can be as simple or as complex as you want to make it. I slow roasted peppers, onions, garlic, and tomatoes to add to my tomato starter to create my sauce. You can add anything your heart desires to it. Examples of what I have added to my sauces are bell peppers, mild – hot peppers, mushrooms, squashes, eggplant, the list is truly endless.
Ricotta (I used 32 oz)
Cheese(s) of your choice
Spaghetti sauce (I made mine with my tomato starter recipe and slow roasted tomatoes.)
Seasonings of your choice (I used salt, pepper, parsley, dill, cilantro, and red pepper flakes.)
Cook noodles according to manufacturer’s directions.
Add all ingredients except for the cheese into a large bowl or pot and mix thoroughly.
Place the pasta mix into a casserole dish and add your cheese(s) on top.
Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes or until the cheese is slightly browned.
Yea, seriously, it truly was that simple and that easy to make!
