Recipe: KB's Baked Ziti

1 lb dry ziti pasta 1 onion, finely chopped 1 lb lean ground beef (I used turkey b/c I don't eat beef, could also use spinach if you want a vegetarian dish) 2 (26oz) jars Hunts 4 Cheese spaghetti sauce 6oz provolone cheese - sliced (about 12 slices) 1 16oz pkg sour cream 6oz mozzarella cheese, shredded (or more, if you like lots of cheese!) 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or more, if you like lots of cheese!) Preheat oven to 350° Bring large pot of lightly salted water to boil Add zit pasta, cook until al-dente (about 8 minutes) Drain well In large skillet, brown ground beef (or turkey or, just use uncooked spinach leaves) & chopped onion over medium heat Add spaghetti sauce Simmer 15 minutes Butter your biggest casserole dish (it will overflow!!!) Layer as follows:
  • 1/2 ziti pasta
  • all provolone cheese
  • all sour cream
  • 1/2 spaghetti sauce mixture (w/ ground beef, turkey or spinach, whichever you use)
  • remaining ziti pasta
