Baked Ziti

Who doesn't love meat, tomato sauce, pasta and lots of cheese baked to perfection? I have made this a couple of times since these pictures were taken and it has passed the approval of the guys I live with as something worth repeating. I found the recipe at Sugar and Spice.

Baked Ziti

1 pound tube shaped pasta
1 Jar spaghetti sauce
1 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed, cut into chunks and cooked
1 cup grated Romano cheese, divided
8 oz. mozzarella, diced
Shredded mozzarella

1. Cook pasta to al dente. Drain and put into a large bowl.

2. Toss pasta with 3 cups sauce, sausage, 1/2 cup Romano cheese, and diced mozzarella.

3. Pour into 13x9 glass baking dish and top with remaining 1/2 cup Romano cheese and handful of shredded mozzarella sprinkled on top.

4. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake additional 15 minutes until sauce and cheese are bubbling.
