Baked Ziti

"A quick and easy way to prepare a tasty and filling pasta dish, originally from Mr. Food. Just use your favorite bottled spaghetti sauce. You can use any shape of pasta. I do add more cheese, but I love cheese!"

    I ended up using lb of pasta (ziti or rigatoni work great for this), and added 2 spicy Italian turkey sausage crumbed and 1/2 or so of ground chicken (or beef- whatever you like or have available) to the sauce. I also added a layer of zucchini circles in the middle, and topped it all off with sliced mushrooms. We like our food on the spicy side, so also gave a nice sprinkle of crushed red peppers on top. This is a good base recipe, just add ingredients you have or enjoy to make it your own. I also added an egg to the ricotta cheese mixture. I had a few slices of provolone. Yum

    I cannot imagine any type of pasta without meat to flavor the dish. Sausage,I prefer a loose,good quality, breakfast sausage.It just adds a delicious taste.If you prefer,Italian sausage but I like the breakfast sausage crumbled throughout the dish.
