Baked Ziti Rigati
This is one of our go to dishes.
Pasta - really any kind - I prefer ziti or spaghetti - boil per directions but not all the way. It will cook more in the oven.
Meat sauce - brown and drain 1 pound hamburger and sausage. Add your sauce of choice - we prefer Ragu thick and chunky, but any will do.
Cheese - mozzarella, Parmesan.
So, cook pasta, drain. Add to meat sauce. Mix in 2 cups of mozzerella. Top with some of the sauce, and more cheese.
Bake at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes or until cheese browns a little and is bubbly.
We had fresh snap green beans. Served with gentle sprinkling of Parmesan.
