The whole family is sure to love a classic one dish pasta that’s filled with cheesy goodness: baked ziti. It’s easy to prepare on a weeknight and reheats deliciously the next day. Though the below version is a classic cheese creation, you can experiment by swapping in your favorite cheeses or adding in ground beef or roasted vegetables. Serve it on the side with homemade meatballs or as a main dish.
Combine 16oz ricotta cheese with one egg and a handful of chopped parsley.
Add one cup of grated Parmesan cheese and one cup of grated mozzarella cheese.
Make sauce from scratch or take a shortcut and combine one jar of store-bought sauce with one can of crushed tomatoes.
Add one pound of al dente cooked ziti to the cheese mixture and pour into a baking dish. Top with remaining mozzarella cheese and any leftover sauce.
Bake in a 350 degree oven until bubbling, about 30 minutes.
