Beefy Baked Ziti

Baked Ziti is a classic and this version is a home run! Ground beef and three cheeses make this dish a great weeknight family dinner or the perfect dish for potlucks.

Cooking Time45 min

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces package Ziti pasta
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 27-ounce cans spaghetti sauce
  • 6 ounces provolone Cheese, sliced
  • 6 ounces mozzarella cheese, sliced or shredded
  • 1 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta as directed on the manufacturer's packaging. Drain and reserve. Meanwhile, saute the ground beef and chopped onion in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add spaghetti sauce and simmer about 15 minutes.
     
  2. Place about half of the pasta in a lightly oiled 2-quart baking dish. Top with a layer of provolone and mozzarella cheeses. Spread on a layer of about half the sour cream and then half the spaghetti sauce mixture. Cover with the remaining pasta, cheese slices, sour cream, and sauce. Finally, sprinkle on a layer of Parmesan cheese.
     
  3. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for about 30 minutes, or until the cheese and sauce are bubbly. Serve warm.

It's kinda interesting how the ingredients in this recipe are layered like a lasagna. I remember eating something similar to this growing up, except the pasta was toasted in oil first to prevent it from getting mushy and it also added an additional layer of unexpected flavor. There were big chunks of tomato and onion throughout (which I loved)...but what I remember most, is that everything was tossed together in a big bowl before baking and when it was time to eat there were crispy cheesy pasta edges that made the wait worthwhile.

This is sort of reminiscent of a dish my mother used to make. This version is a bit more elaborate since I don't recall mozzarella and provolone being used, but I do recall sour cream and heaps of Parmesan cheese. I think she might have used mozzarella but I certainly don't remember provolone. It was very good (of course I was a kid who would eat nearly anything put in front of me) and I'd like to try this version. I'd definitely add some minced cloves of garlic to the onion.

Baked ziti is one of my favorite casseroles. I like that this is an easy recipe that I can make with limited effort. Pasta is enjoyed in most families so this will make a good dinner. The ziti should be drained earlier than the directions on the package because it will be baked for 30 minutes, otherwise the pasta will be overcooked.

Anyone who thinks this will fit in a 2 qt. baking dish is delusional. A 9 x 13 pan might, MIGHT be big enough!

This is my first time hearing about your page, it looks good to me im always trying new recipes looking forward to some new stuff to make . Thanks
