Baked Ziti

Baked Ziti with Marinara Pasta Sauce

Serves: 8


1 lb ziti

1 lb sweet Italian sausage

1 lb ricotta cheese

1 egg

1 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped

2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

2 cups shredded mozzarella

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 jar DelGrosso's Marinara Pasta Sauce

½ cup heavy cream


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cook ziti according to package directions.
  • Cook sausage in a skillet on medium heat until no longer pink.
  • Pour sauce in a small pot, add cream, and heat on medium-low heat, stirring frequently.
  • In a bowl, mix together ricotta, egg, salt, pepper, basil, parsley, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese until well-blended.
  • Drain ziti and pour back into pot.
  • Add sausage, cheese mixture, and sauce to the ziti and mix through.
  • Pour everything in a baking dish and bake covered for 50-60 minutes.
  • Serve with your favorite salad.

Baked ziti has all the ingredients of lasagna without the extra work. For a vegetarian option, omit the sausage. Try a variety of vegetables such as pepper, onions, and mushrooms. To reheat the next day, add extra sauce as the pasta will absorb the sauce.
