  • R & R: Classic Baked Ziti

    This came from the back of the Mueller's Ziti package. I posted on the back of package recipes thread too! YUMMY!

    I made this last night and it was AWESOME! Easy to make and delicious. My favorite jarred pasta sauce is Bertolli Vidalia Onion and Garlic. I put all the Parmesan in the middle and only topped with the Mozzarella. Hope you enjoy as much as my family and I did. I heated some sauce on the side for guests to add more if they wanted.

     

    Classic Baked Ziti

    1 pound ziti

    1 lb ground beef

    1/2 cup chopped onion

    2 cloves garlic, minced

    6 cups meatless spaghetti sauce, divided

    1 cup pasta water, reserved from draining ziti

    2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese

    1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

     

    Slightly undercook ziti.

    Drain reserving 1 cup of pasta water, cover and set aside.

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

    In large skillet over medium heat, cook beef, onion and garlic; stirring frequently 6 to 8 minutes or until beef is browned. Drain fat.

    Stir in 5 cups spaghetti sauce and reserved pasta water. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Mix the meat/sauce mixture with ziti. Spoon 1/2 of ziti mixture into 13x9x2" baking dish. Sprinkle with Mozzarella and 1/2 of Parmesan cheese. Top with remaining ziti mixture and remaining 1 cup spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake 25 - 30 minutes or until heated through.

    Thanks for the heads up about the Bertolli - I never seem to be satisfied with jarred sauce, so I will surely give this one a try. Thanks for posting this delicious sounding recipe.

    I'm really not a red sauce fan but the Bertolli is really good. I've not tried the other varieties but would like to try the olive oil one. This was even good cold! I was starving and took a bite...I ate 1/2 of what was leftover!
