baked ziti2



1 (16 ounce) package ziti pasta                               

1 egg, lightly beaten                               

1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese                               

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese                               

1 (28 ounce) jar meatless spaghetti sauce, divided                               

2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided                               

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided


1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly spray a 9×13-inch baking dish.

 2.  Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a boil. Stir in ziti pasta and return to a boil. Cook pasta, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain.

 3.  Combine egg, ricotta cheese, and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese in a bowl. Spread 1/3 the spaghetti sauce in prepared baking dish. Top with 1/2 the pasta, 1/2 the ricotta mixture, 1/3 the spaghetti sauce, 1/2 the mozzarella cheese, and 1/2 the Parmesan cheese; repeat layers. Top with remaining spaghetti sauce and Parmesan cheese; cover baking dish with aluminum foil.

4.  Bake in preheated oven until heated through, 45 to 50 minutes.
