My specialty is baked ziti. It's not hard to do and I always make 2 or 3 times the recipe so I have some extra frozen zitis in my freezer.
To make one large pan you'll need:
1 pound of ziti noodles
3-4 Cups of shredded cheese (mozzarella or I like to use a mixed bag with 4 cheeses including cheddar)
1 onion diced
1 pepper diced
1 zucchini cut up
A little olive oil
1 pound of ground beef or turkey
1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 6 oz can of tomato paste
Either 1 jar of store bought sauce or 2-3 cups of homemade sauce
Cook the ziti until aldente. At the same time...
Brown the ground beef in a pan, drain fat, set aside.
In the bottom of a big pot sauté the veggies until they soften (5 minutes) add the beef, and tomato sauces and heat on a low flame. When the pasta is done and the sauce is bubbly prepare the pan. Spread half the ziti in the bottom of the pan and cover with half the sauce and top with half the cheese. Repeat. If you're baking right away cook 375 for 20-30 minutes. If not, wrap and store in fridge until ready to bake, then bake 1 hour at 375. If you freeze the ziti be sure to thaw completely before you bake.
