Baked Ziti

A super simple, quick, delicious meal that people will think you spent hours making.

I like to use Barilla veggie pasta to make it a little bit healthier, for this recipe you will only need one box. My favorite sauces to use are made by Bertolli. You will need one 24 ounce jar of marinara and one 12 ounce jar of alfredo. I have found that for the marinara the organic olive oil, basil and garlic sauce give the dish the most flavor, and for the alfredo I like to use garlic alfredo. Then you will also need 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese and 1 cup of shredded parmesan cheese. You may use whatever brand of cheese you wish for this. I like to use low fat cheese to make it more figure friendly.
  1. Cook the pasta
  2. Mix both jars of sauce and cheeses together in separate bowl
  3. Drain the pasta
  4. Put the pasta into a 13X9 baking dish
  5. Pour sauce mixture over pasta and mix up
  6. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes
  7. Enjoy! :)
If you wish to make this a meatless meal you may. It is recommend that you have one meatless day per week. If not this dish goes great with grilled chicken breast or sausage. I also always serve it with a small tossed salad, and some garlic bread. Wegmans has the BEST garlic bread in their bakery if you don't feel like making your own.
