Baked Ziti

This is one of my favorite recipes. If you want it to be even easier use a jar of prepared pasta sauce instead of the crushed tomato's and sauce I do that ALL the time! Enjoy.

8 oz. ziti  pasta noodles.

1 pound lean ground beef

1 small onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes, undrained

1 can (16 oz.) tomato sauce

1 t. oregano

1 C. grated Mozzarella cheese

1/2 C. shredded cheddar ( optional, I like mine cheesy)

1/4 C. grated Parmesan cheese

Cook ziti in boiling water and  drain.

Lightly brown beef and onion in a saucepan. Pour off any excess fat. Add garlic, tomato with juice and all, tomato sauce and oregano. Simmer for 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Mix cooked ziti and sauce together in a 2-1/2-quart baking dish. Mix 1/2 the cheese in and sprinkle the other half lightly over ziti mixture.

Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.

 6 servings.
