Easy Baked Ziti Recipe

 

Simple, easy and cheesy! My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:

 

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 2 cans or jars (26 oz.) of your favorite spaghetti sauce*
  • 1 jar (16 oz.) Garlic Alfredo Sauce
  • 1 box (1 lb.) Penne Pasta
  • ½ yellow onion diced (optional)
  • 1 bag (2 cups) Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
  3. Prepare pasta according to directions.
  4. In a medium sauce pan, brown ground beef with onion (if using).
  5. After beef is brown and crumbled, drain excess grease.
  6. Put back in pot and pour in one jar of spaghetti sauce.
  7. Keep mixture on low until pasta is done.
  8. When pasta is finished, drain excess water from pasta.
  9. You want the pasta as dry as possible.
  10. Put pasta back in large pot (with heat off) and pour in jar of alfredo sauce.
  11. Combine until thoroughly coated.
  12. Pour pasta mixture into bottom of 9×13 dish.
  13. Cover pasta with spaghetti sauce mixture.
  14. * Don’t put the pot that you used for the spaghetti sauce in with the dirty dishes yet.
  15. Keep that pot out and start heating up second jar of spaghetti sauce on low heat.
  16. Put a cover on it to keep warm until ziti is finished baking.
  17. Sprinkle top with mozzarella cheese.
  18. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes.
  19. (I like to spray the inside of my foil with nonstick spray so the cheese doesn’t stick to it.
  20. Or you could use that new nonstick aluminum foil.)
  21. Remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  22. Let rest for about 5 minutes after taking out of oven.
  23. Serve portions onto plates, and pour some of the heated spaghetti sauce on top.
  24. Cook’s Notes: The second jar of spaghetti sauce is optional in this.
  25. We really enjoy the additional spaghetti sauce with ours but it is not absolutely necessary.
  26. When I make this, I usually purchase the cans of Hunt’s Spaghetti Sauce because it is far cheaper than other spaghetti sauces and I can afford to splurge on the extra can.Save
