BAKED ZITI IN CREAMY MARINARA
This recipe is so great and easy because you don't have to cook the pasta first. You can also omit the meat if you like.
1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1 26 oz jar pasta sauce, (Ragu or Prego)
1 1/2 c. water
15 oz. container of Ricotta cheese
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
Mix well and stir in:
8 oz. uncooked ziti (can use penne also) and the ground beef. Place in a 9 x 13 pan and bake, covered in 400 degree ovenfor 55 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with Mozarella cheese. Bake uncovered for 5 more minutes until cheese is melted. So easy!!
