    1. 1
      Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 475.
    2. 2
      Combine oil, garlic, pepper flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in 12-inch ovensafe nonstick skillet and saute over medium-high heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. (If your skillet is not ovensafe, transfer the pasta mixture into a shallow 2-quart casserole dish before sprinkling with the cheese and baking).
    3. 3
      Add crushed tomatoes, water, ziti and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
    4. 4
      Cover and cook, stirring often and adjusting heat as needed to maintain vigorous simmer, until ziti is almost tender, 15-18 minutes.
    5. 5
      Stir in cream, Parmesan, and basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle mozzarella evenly over ziti. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until cheese has melted and browned, about 10 minutes. Serve.

      This has become a family favorite. I use rigatoni instead of ziti, and two 14 1/2 oz cans of petite diced tomatoes w garlic & olive oil instead 28 oz of crushed. It is fantastic!

      One of the easiest, if not the easiest pasta recipe I've ever made. I pan fried some italian style chicken sausage before hand and added it back in to enhance the flavor. WOW! ok? WOW! Can be made very easily and efficiently at a fire station.

      I love this recipe! I've also been known to add in some zucchini (sauteed in butter and garlic) as well as mushrooms.
