Another from the Goldbeck's Short-Order Cookbook. Its quick, easy, and tasty. You can try it with differently flavoured tomato sauces, or try it with your own. Add vegetables, whatever!


  1. Cook pasta in salted, boiling water until barely tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Drain.
  3. Combine pasta, tomato sauce and ricotta in a 2 quart baking dish.
  4. Top with cheese slices.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes at 350F until very hot and cheese is melted.

I started to post my recipe, but this is so similar that I thought I would just add it to a review! The recipe I follow is exactly the same but doubled (use a whole box of ziti, jar of spaghetti sauce, and 15 oz container of ricotta). I stir all of it together except keep back about 1/2 the spaghetti sauce and pour it on top of the pasta/cheese mixture before topping with the extra cheese. I like it like this but my husband demands that cooked Italian sausage be stirred into his half before baking. Quite easy and yummy.

As you say: quick, easy and tasty, but you forgot to mention "versatile" ;;-) Adding some extra taste to the sauce (in my case by using chillis) is necessary, though.
