Baked Ziti

Who does not love a good baked ziti.  Ziti is one of my favorite meals, but sometimes it is way to dry, and just not good.  I have dried many variations of recipes and just found my favorite one.  This recipe is prefect the ziti came out nice and moist!

  • 1 tablespoon of parseley
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tablespoon of oregano

  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1.5 cups of shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Cook pasta according to directions (cook for 2-3 minutes under time so the noodles are still a little firm)
  3. Drain and rinse noodles and add to a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add the mozzarella cheese, ricotta, italian seasoning,oregano, garlic powder, oregano, salt, pepper, egg and half of the jar of spaghetti sauce... mix well.
  5. Once mixed if you feel you need more sauce add more, if not save for the top.
  6. Transfer mixture into a casserole dish.
  7. Sprinkle  shredded Parmesan cheese onto the top of dish, make sure it is  all covered.
  8. Add your remaining sauce to the top of the ziti (it will not cover all of it try and spread it as evenly as possilble.
  9. Top the sauce with your grated Parmesan cheese and cover with foil.
  10. Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
  11. Let sit for 5 minutes and serve
