Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook ziti in boiling water until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 13 minutes; drain. Rinse ziti with cold water until cool; drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Mix ziti, ricotta cheese, 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, egg, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
  4. Spread 1/2 cup tomato sauce into the bottom of a 2 1/2-quart shallow baking dish. Pour ziti mixture into the dish. Top with remaining 1 1/2 cup tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until sauce and cheese layer is bubbly and lightly browned, about 30 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

This was so good and will definitely be added to our regular dinner rotation. I did make a few changes based on personal preferences and what I had available. I added some oregano, basil and garlic powder to the cheese mixture because that's what I do when I make my lasagna filling. I made a few substitutions: penne instead of ziti; mixed grated Italian blend cheese for the mozzarella and used jar spaghetti sauce instead of plain tomato sauce. Lastly I sprinked a combo of freshly grated parmesan, asiago and romano cheese on top instead of just parmesan. Next time I going to bake in a 9x13" baking dish because it was just a bit much for a 2.5 quart and it took about 10 minutes longer to bake but I think a larger baking dish would eliminate the extra baking time. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

I made this exactly how it stated. It was ok. It was bland, could have used some good seasonings. I think with some garlic, onion powder, a little more salt, and Italian herbs, this could be really good. I would have also added more cheese (it's a little dry). My kids and hubby thought it was pretty bland compared to other Italian dishes.

This was a good base but I tweaked things. I added salt pepper garlic powder oregano and basil to the tomato sauce and ziti mixture. It was tasty but came out "watery". I also used part skim ricotta cheese.
