Tangy Baked Ziti

Tangy Baked Ziti created by Ashley Cuoco

I'm not a big fan of ricotta, so when I found this recipe, I had to try it. I'm so glad I did! While not a pronounced flavor, the sour cream adds a creaminess to the recipe. A big hit with my picky son! I leave out the ground beef for my vegetarian DH.

    We love this ziti. It is always requested of me to bring it to pot luck suppers. Feeds an army!!

    I rated this as one star instead of the 2 stars it deserves so unsuspecting people who want to make a classic baked ziti won't be fooled by this recipe's high rating. This is NOT an authentic Italian baked ziti. While the sour cream is thinner and creamier, it lends a sourer taste than the sweet cream of ricotta. It is more like a stroganoff flavor rather than a classic Italian one.

    This is my favorite baked pasta dish. The provolone/sour cream combo is perfect. Take the previous suggestion to mix sauce with pasta before layering. I make 1/2 batch for six people, esp if it's part of a bigger meal.
