Ragú Baked Pizza Ziti
1 jar (1 lb. 8 oz.) Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Pasta Sauce
1 1/2 cups water
1 container (15 oz.) ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (about 8 oz.)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
8 ounces uncooked ziti pasta
1 small package of pepperoni
Now... I'm a busy mom. I work from home, keep up with the housework and care for my son. So I am NOT big on kitchen clean up and I certainly don't like to add to my work load while making dinner. I also rarely have a lot of time to prep a meal, especially since my son is super mobile now. The changes I made to the prepping and cooking of Ragú's recipe reflect that. To be honest, I normally don't use Ragú. But this Old World Style is much thicker than what I remember Ragú being. Very yummy!
Preheat oven to 400 Degrees Fahrenheit
Mix the Ragu, water, ricotta cheese, uncooked ziti, 1/2 of pepperoni packet (or 1/2 of your favorite pizza toppings) and Parmesan cheese in casserole dish.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese and the remaining pepperoni (or remaining toppings) on top.
Cover tightly with foil and bake for about 45 minutes. And you end up with....
BAKED PIZZA ZITI!
It was definitely a hit with my hubby. He told me "You should make this again!" And then promptly claimed the leftovers.
I think we have our new Friday Night "Tra-Dish"
