Classic Baked Ziti Recipe

Baked Ziti 1

I don’t eat enough baked ziti. It’s just so rich and wonderful and gooey and fattening, and did I say wonderful?

Ziti also freezes very well, so if you have more freezer space than I do, you can make pans or freeze up portion sized servings for the future.

Now What?

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Cook the pasta according to the directions.

While pasta is cooking, in a bowl, mix together the egg, ricotta, Parmesan and fresh pepper.

Drain the pasta when it is very al dente and then put back in the pot. Mix the gravy into the pasta. Mix the ricotta mixture into the pasta. Mix HALF of the shredded mozzarella into the pasta.

In an oven dish big enough to fit all the pasta, pour all the pasta in the pan and the sprinkle w remaining mozzarella.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cheese at the top has melted and browned a little.
