Ingredients:

  • Babes On Broad Red Wine Sauce recipe
  • 1 lb of ziti
  • 1 15oz container of ricotta cheese
  • 1 pack of shredded Italian blend cheese
  • 3 TB parmesan
  • 2 TB oregano

  • Optional** – ground turkey/sausage/beef/chicken

Recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Make the Babes On Broad red wine sauce.
  3. While that’s simmering, boil water and cook the pasta all the way through.
  4. ***OPTIONAL STEP! In a sauce pan, cook the ground meat through.
  5. While the pasta is cooking, in a large bowl, combine ricotta, shredded Italian blend cheese, parmesan, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. (And ground meat)
  6. Drain the pasta and add to the bowl. Mix well.
  7. When sauce is done, take a large spoonfull (about 1/2c) of the sauce and add to cheese and pasta mixture. Incorporate well.
  8. In a 13×9 baking dish, dump the pasta mixture and spread evenly. Spoon the sauce overtop so the pasta is well covered. Make sure you save some extra sauce saved for leftovers!
  9. Sprinkle the mozzarella on top, and bake for 40 minutes.

Goes perfectly with the Chicken Parm too!
