Sensational Sides: Kid-Friendly Baked Ziti

By: Cameron Curtis

The whole family is sure to love a classic one dish pasta that's filled with cheesy goodness: baked ziti. It's easy to prepare on a weeknight and reheats deliciously the next day. Though the below version is a classic cheese creation, you can experiment by swapping in your favorite cheeses or adding in ground beef or roasted vegetables. Serve it on the side with homemade meatballs or as a main dish.

Combine 16oz ricotta cheese with one egg and a handful of chopped parsley.

Add one cup of grated Parmesan cheese and one cup of grated mozzarella cheese.

Make sauce from scratch or take a shortcut and combine one jar of store-bought sauce with one can of crushed tomatoes.

Add one pound of al dente cooked ziti to the cheese mixture and pour into a baking dish. Top with remaining mozzarella cheese and any leftover sauce.

Bake in a 350 degree oven until bubbling, about 30 minutes.
