Z - Baked Ziti

Simple Kid-friendly meatless dish. We love it!  With a salad and bread, it's makes a wonderful meal.

Baked Ziti

Ingredients:

1 pkg (16 oz.) ziti or small tube pasta
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 carton (15 oz) part-skim ricotta cheese
½ C grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1 jar (28 oz) meatless spaghetti sauce
2 C (8 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook pasta according to pkg directions. Drain pasta; set aside. In a bowl, combine the egg, ricotta and ¼ C Parmesan cheese. Spread 1 C spaghetti sauce in a 9x13 baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with a third of the pasta, half of the ricotta mixture, 2/3 C mozzarella cheese, 1 T. Parmesan cheese and 1 C sauce. Repeat layers of pasta, ricotta mixture and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with 2 T. Parmesan cheese. Top with remaining pasta, sauce, mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 min or until heated through.

I don't usually do meatless, but in this economy, this is definately a recipe I am going to try, definately with bread and a salad. Thanks for sharing.
