Where's the Beef?

Today's recipe is one of the easiest dishes to make - Ziti. Below is the McCormick recipe I started with, but I add sautéed zucchini squash and prepared italian sausage to ours...
Little Nate says it's, "Mmm mmm mmm!" Can't argue with that :-)

Baked Ziti is a favorite at potlucks and buffets with good reason -- it's easy, delicious and it travels well.

Makes 12 (1-cup) servings.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour 15 minutes


Italian Tomato Sauce (recipe link below)

1 package (16 ounces) ziti

1 container (15 ounces) ricotta cheese

1 package (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese (2 cups)

1 egg

2 teaspoons McCormick® Perfect Pinch® Italian Seasoning

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Black Pepper, Ground

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


1. Prepare Italian Tomato Sauce.

2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cook pasta as directed on package. Drain and return to saucepot. Gently stir in 1 1/2 cups of the tomato sauce, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, egg, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper until well mixed.

3. Spoon into 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with no stick cooking spray. Top with additional 1 1/2 cups of the pasta sauce and Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil.

4. Bake 30 minutes or until heated through. Serve with remaining 3 cups tomato sauce or freeze sauce for later use.
