It's from the sopranos cookbook but I use my own Sunday Gravy (Real Italian Spaghetti Sauce)and Meatballs and it is the best food in the world there aren't words to describe it!

  1. Put all the ziti in a large bowl.
  2. Toss ziti with 3 cups of the gravy and half of the grated cheese.
  3. Spoon half of the ziti into a casserole dish.
  4. Spread the ricotta over the top of the ziti.

This is our family's recipe for baked ziti, too. Sometimes I also add spinach in with the cheeses, especially if I happen to have some leftover creamed spinach. I always use more sauce than the recipe calls for, it seems the pasta eats it up!

Creamy and delicious. I made with my homemade sauce: Italian Meat Sauce for Pasta or Lasagna which is a meat sauce so omitted the meatballs. I had to guess at the cooking temperature, I cooked at 375 degrees for one hour then uncovered for 15 minutes.

This was delicious! I quartered the recipe (no difficulties encountered) since only 2 were dining! I wish that I could follow the recipe EXACTLY but I have to watch my colesterol - I used my own plain tomato pasta sauce, my own meatballs (made without eggs), light ricotta, low fat mozarella & shredded parmesan on top. Thanx Bri!
