Baked Ziti

I have been a little HO-HUM lately. With all that is going on with my dad, then Prom and After Prom til 6:00 am and the fact that it is still snowing off/on in Omaha - just a little pouty/pititful!

I need to start cooking for my family again. I did make an easy recipe last night that I have had for quite some time. We all enjoyed it.. and I think you will too. It is a good, easy teenager approved recipe.

Baked Ziti

1 16 oz package ziti
1 lb. Italian sausage
1/2 lb ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 cups spaghetti sauce (homemade or jarred)
1 15 oz container ricotta
dried parsley
2-3 cups shredded mozzarella
1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan

Cook pasta according to directions, drain and set aside. Cook sausage and ground beef with onion in large skillet over medium heat. Drain and return to skillet- add sauce. After ziti is cooked, add ricotta, a couple of shakes of dried parsley and half of the mozzarella cheese. Spoon half of the sauce into bottom of a greased 9 x 13. Top with all of the ziti mixture and the rest of the sauce. Cover and bake at 350 for 15 min. Remove foil, top with rest of mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese and bake 10 more minutes. Serve with green salad and garlic bread.
