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 33 and my youngest is 15. This year, I adopted my 5 year old Granddaughter. 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. Please visit and subscribe to my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWn_VTumL1QLpukYEamtzcg. 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. I recently had a the wonderful opportunity to submit my music to Warner Bros Records for consideration to the label! They liked my music but requested that I get in the game by acquiring 20k followers. Appearantly, that what it takes to get signed to a major label! Sure WB, I'm working on it! You have to have a huge following to land a recording contract. Gone are the days where a label can and will make you...
