Baked Ziti Recipe
In case you’ve ever wondered how to make baked ziti —
6 Ingredient Easy Baked Ziti
- 16 oz ziti pasta cooked as directed on the box
- 1 lb ground beef
- 14 oz spaghetti sauce
- 8 oz cream cheese softened
- 1 c sour cream
- 1 ½ c shredded cheese
- Heat oven to 375 degrees.
- Cook pasta, drain and set aside.
- Brown beef in a pan, add spaghetti sauce and cook until heated through.
- Stir softened cream cheese and sour cream, set aside.
- Layer noodles, sour cream and cream cheese, then meat sauce in a 9x13 pan.
- Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.
- Bake 20 min. or until heated through.
The melted cheese on top might be my favorite part. I especially love the crispy parts.
Although my family loves all kinds of pasta dishes, my favorites are the ones that are baked. You can use mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar and/or use another variation of pasta.
