Ziti Bake

Posted by moderndaygourmet on October 4, 2007

This is another one from Confessions of a Kitchen Diva. It’s pretty basic but delicious. Now that fall is around the corner (yes, I know it’s October, but this is Texas for pete’s sake, our fall lasts about 15 minutes), I’ll be making it more.

1 pound package ziti pasta
1 container (15 oz) ricotta cheese
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup chopped parsley
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
4 cups spaghetti sauce

Cook pasts according to directions until al dente, about 12 minutes. Mix ricotta cheese and next 8 ingredients. Stir in 1 cup mozzarella; set aside. Drain pasta thoroughly; stir with 2 cups spaghetti sauce.

Spoon 1 cup spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 pan; top with one half of pasta. Spread ricotta cheese mixture evenly over pasta. Top with remaining pasta, and pour remaining spaghetti sauce evenly over the pasta.

Cover pan with foil and bake at 350 for one hour or until center is bubbly. Remove foil and top with remaining mozzarella. Return to oven 10 minutes until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and let rest 10 minutes before serving.
