Baked ziti is a perfect weekday recipe. A little bit of work upfront, put it in the oven, walk away, and it taste like you spent hours making it!
2 cups pasta (I used spiral noodles)
3 cups (1 jar) of pasta sauce
1 package thawed frozen chopped spinach (strained)
1 cup ricotta cheese
1.5 cup fresh mozzarella balls
.25 cup parmesan, grated
fresh basil & oregano, chopped
salt & pepper
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook noodles according to package.
2. Transfer noodles to mixing bowl, add tomato sauce, spinach, half of the mozzarella, herbs, salt & pepper. Stir mixture together and add to casserole dish. Add remaining mozzarella and grated parm on top.
3. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. (You can do whatever you want for the 30 minutes, because you're done here!)
fresh basil and oregano from my indoor herb 'garden' - not really much to look at, but it sure is tasty!
