Baked Ziti

Brandon and I made baked ziti. Last year, I made a different version (not gluten free) so I was looking forward to putting a new spin on the recipe.

You’ll need:

1 bag/box of gluten free penne (I used the Stop & Shop Brand)

12oz fat free ricotta

1 can of your favorite marinara sauce (I used Trader Joe’s)

8oz lite shredded mozzarella cheese

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a lasagna pan.
  3. Cook pasta according to directions on the package.
    1. Rinse with cold water and drain.
  4. Combine the ricotta cheese, 1/3 cup of marinara sauce and red pepper flakes (if you want).
  5. To assemble, put 1/2 of marinara at the bottom of the pan.
  6. Put half the cooked pasta in an even layer.
  7. Put the ricotta mixture on top of the pasta in another even layer.
  8. Cover the ricotta mixture with marinara sauce.
  9. Put the rest of the pasta on top of the marinara sauce.
  10. Spoon the remaining marinara sauce on top.
  11. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over everything.  (I topped with Italian seasonings)
  12. Bake until the cheese is brown & melts, about 20-30 minutes.
  13. Let the baked ziti rest at least 10 minutes before serving.

It seems like there were a lot of steps, but it’s all 1, 2, 3.
