      This recipe is "easy" but I can't say that I cared much for it as it was. Sooo...
      I browned up about 1/2 lb of lean ground pork to add a bit of protein value, and then added the sauce to it. Speaking of sauce, I like the Newman's Socarooni sauce.. but for a pound of pasta, two pounds or ricotta and a pound and a half of mozzarella.. a small jar of sauce simply wasn't enough to hold the balance.. so.. I doubled it. I also added a few good twists of black pepper, some crushed red pepper flake and some Italian-blend seasoning to the cheese mixture before assembling everything. I also took the cup and a half of cheese for the top and tossed it with a bit of Parmesan and a tablespoon and a half of olive oil (to eliminate the long stringing stretches of cheese when serving this beast.) before I layered it over the ziti and sauce. I increased the oven time to about 40 minutes to give the cheese a good brown and bubble character, and the second go at this dish turned out much better. My kids love it this way, so I'm not complaining.
