Easy Peasy Baked Ziti!

 Start by making a meat sauce…  I use 1/2 -80/20 hamburger meat, 1/2 ground pork browned with 1/2 large onion diced, 1 large diced shallot,  granulated garlic to taste ,salt and pepper to taste. 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper for a little zip! 1 medium size jar of Prego Sauce ( traditional ). Stir in 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar as a last step to this meat sauce. 

Boil your Penne noodles! 1 +1/2 box about 18 oz. of pasta… Drain and incorporate with meat sauce. Fold together…

Spray a large casserole, 13 X9 in. baker with cooking spray. Turn out the meat sauce into the casserole dish.

Fold  16 oz. of ricotta and a tablespoon of parsley flakes together. Drop by tablespoon onto penne/ meat sauce.

Completely cover all of the casserole with shredded mozzarella. A small package will do depending on how much cheese you like!

Bake @ 375 degree preheated oven for 30 min!

Ooh yum! I add a tossed salad and (cheater) packaged baked Texas Toast… This makes a well rounded meal…Enjoy!

I've been a stay at home Mom for many years...Have earned a PhD in life experience. My oldest is 30 and my youngest is 13. On a quest to see all that I can be now. I am a musician, singer/ songwriter. In the process of trying to become marketable. Would love to make money doing what I love! I love to do many domestic things also. Nothing I do seems to be profitable. Guess I am at a point in life that I would like to be compensated . My whole life I have given freely. Now, show me my money making niche. Still in the process of figuring that out.
