Baked Ziti

One of our favorite meals in our house is pasta. We love it all sorts of different ways, but one of our absolute favorites is baked ziti. We tend to change the recipe here and there, but for the most part we use this recipe. I apologize that I have a lack of pictures today. My camera battery died and I have to wait for it to charge up before I can take some more pics!

Baked Ziti

  • 1 lb ziti, cooked al dente
  • 1 lb ground turkey (or lean ground beef)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2-3 Cups Pasta Sauce
  • 1 Cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese

In a large skillet, brown ground meat and diced onion until meat is cooked through and onions are softened.

In a large bowl, add meat mixture, pasta sauce, cottage cheese, sour cream, and garlic. Add pasta and mix until pasta is well coated. Pour pasta mixture into a 9x11 casserole dish.

In a medium bowl, combine mozarella and parmesan cheese. Pour cheese mixture evenly across the top of the pasta in the casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
