Easy Baked Ziti

I’ve been sick lately and craving soft, yummy, easy to prepare recipes. This one really works for me. Being Jewish, I skip all the stress of the “holiday season” but I’m sure you could add this to any meal as a side in your hectic time. It’s a great kids meal and if you need something quick to serve a crowd it works perfectly.

Ingredients:

Half bag of ziti (penne) noodles prepared as directed on bag

1/2 container of cottage cheese (about 1 cup)

1/4 cup sour cream (use plain yogurt if you want to cut down on calories)

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 small can tomato sauce (1 & 1/4 cups)

1/2 tsp garlic

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheated oven at 350F

Prepare and drain ziti noodles as directed on package. Mix cheese, tomato sauce and spices in 9×11 inch pan holding 1/2 shredded cheese for topping. Add ziti noodles and mix thoroughly. Press the noodles down with spoon so everything is flat in pan. Top off with 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Bake in oven at 350F for twenty minutes or until cheese on top is bubbly and slightly brown. Serves 6-8. Double it if you want for more people

This recipe is so good even the second day. Easily warmed in microwave and great to freeze.
