Baked Ziti To Go is a comforting pasta dish that makes everything a little better. It feeds a large group, and is always a delicious treat.
Why This Recipe is Special
When one of my friends is hurting, the first thing I want to do is take them a home-cooked meal. It's my way of saying "I love you" and I hope you "feel better soon."
I've played with this recipe over the years, but I think I've finally found the perfect combination of cheese, sauce and noodles. You know what I'm talking 'bout. It's what I call the TRIFECTA of GOODNESS.
- ziti pasta
- ricotta cheese
- parmesan cheese
- dried oregano
- fresh basil
- spaghetti sauce
- mozzarella cheese
How to Make It
Baked Ziti is simple to make. Just boil ziti noodles, drain, and start layering with spaghetti sauce, ricotta, parmesan and mozzarella. The combination of three different types of cheese sets it apart from all the others.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Boil and drain ziti pasta. Mix ricotta, parmesan, oregano, basil and garlic in a large bowl with 2 beaten eggs to create cheese mixture.
In a large casserole dish or to-go pan, spread a thin layer of spaghetti sauce on the bottom to avoid sticking. Alternate layers of noodles, sauce, mozzarella and cheese mixture until you reach the top of the pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until cheese melts and forms a golden crust.
Serve Baked Ziti To Go with crusty bread and my Rainbow Salad. It's also easy to prepare and freeze to use at a later time. When ready to serve, let thaw for 30 minutes out of the freezer, then bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
Do you have a friend who needs a little pick-me-up? Delivering a pan of Baked Ziti speaks volumes when words are hard to find.
