Great Baked Ziti

November 2, 2011 at 8:33 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

This is a great, zesty baked ziti.  The sour cream makes it really different and creamy but without the typical ricotta taste.  This is a simple alternative to lasagna and you won’t be disappointed!

You need:

  • 1 pound ziti pasta
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 (26 ounce) jars spaghetti sauce
  • 6 ounces provolone cheese, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 6 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350.  In a large skillet, brown onion and ground beef over medium heat.  Add spaghetti sauce, and simmer 15 minutes.  Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.  Add ziti pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes; drain.  Butter a 9×13 inch baking dish.

Layer 1/2 the ziti.

Layer provolone.

Then the sour cream.

Now half the sauce.

Then top with ziti, mozzarella, and remaining sauce.  Top with parmesan and bake for 30 minutes.
