Easy Baked Ziti

This is a household favorite! And better yet, easy to make!  I love a one dish dinner, just add a loaf of crunchy bread and a salad and your meal is complete!


1 pound Ziti Pasta

1 Pound Italian Sausage (ground) choose mild or hot based on your preference 

3 & 1/2 Cups Marinara Sauce

1 Can Diced Tomatoes

3 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Salt (1 tsp to boil in water)

Fresh Black Pepper (1 tsp)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Boil salted water and cook pasta until al dente (tender but still slightly firm) drain and place in a large bowl, allowing to cool for a few minutes.

Cook sausage in a skillet until no longer pink, drain off any fat and add to bowl with pasta.

Add the marinara, 1 cup of mozzarella and season with black pepper

Toss everything in the bowl together until combined well

Transfer pasta mixture to a 9x13 baking dish (oiled or sprayed with cooking spray)

Add remaining mozzarella evenly over pasta, you can add more cheese if you want, or even drop a few spoons of ricotta cheese on top

Bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes, until cheese is bubbling and slightly browned on top
