1- 16 ounce package of ziti
1 pound ground beef* (or 1/2 pound ground beef and half pound sausage)
1 cup onions, diced
1- 26 ounce jar tomato and basil pasta sauce
1- 14.5 ounce can stewed tomatoes, undrained
1/2 tablespoon basil pesto (I omitted this)
2 cups Italian cheese blend
1- 15 ounce container Ricotta cheese
Cook and drain ziti.
Brown the meat and onions.
Stir in pasta sauce, tomatoes and basil presto. Simmer 5-10 minutes
Combine ricotta and 1 cup cheese and toss with pasta.
Pour pasta into a greased 9x13 dish. Put the meat mixture over the pasta and top with the remaining cheese.
Bake 12-15 minutes at 375 degrees
I paired the baked ziti with some garlic bread. Absolutely delicious :)
