Meatless Mains

Simple Baked Ziti Warren

Oh no, I have nothing to eat. Phew, half a box of Ziti - I'm all set.

I personally don't like cottage cheese or Ricotta or mushrooms. I also tried it with beef, but it's not really necessary. What's here is all you need.

1/2 16-ounce box Ziti
1 egg
8 ounces shredded Mozzarella cheese (makes 2 cups)
2/3 jar spaghetti sauce (about 30 ounces) - I use Ragu with meat flavoring.
garlic powder
Parmesan cheese

Cook up the Ziti - maybe a minute less than normal, so 8 minutes or so.

Meanwhile ... Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix the egg, shredded Mozzarella, about 15 ounces spaghetti sauce, sprinkles of parsley flakes, and sprinkles of garlic powder.

Drain the cooked ziti and mix it in the bowl.

Put the mixture in a casserole dish (I use a 9-inch square one that is about 2-inches deep). Cover with more sauce (about 15 more ounces). Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake for about 45 minutes in a 350-degree oven.
