Baked Ziti

I had never had baked ziti before (weird, I know). So I searched for a recipe to try out.

Adapted from Allrecipes


1 pound dry ziti pasta
1 onion, chopped (omitted)
1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 pound Italian sausage (added this to the original recipe)
2 (26 ounce) jars spaghetti sauce
6 ounces provolone cheese, sliced
1 1/2 cups sour cream
6 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (omitted - I forgot it)
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add ziti pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes; drain.

In a large skillet, brown sausage and ground beef over medium heat. Add spaghetti sauce, and simmer 15 minutes. Add pasta to sauce mixture.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Layer as follows: 1/2 of the ziti, Provolone cheese, sour cream, 1/2 sauce mixture, remaining ziti, remaining sauce mixture. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheeses are melted.
