Italian Sausage Baked Ziti
1/2 pound Ziti pasta; cooked al dente (8 minutes) and drained
1 pound Italian sausage; removed from casing
1 3-lb jar Spaghetti sauce; see note
4 slices Provolone cheese
8 ounces Ricotta cheese
6 ounces Mozzarella cheese; shredded
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
Brown the meat and onion and drain fat. Return the meat and onion back to the pan and add the spaghetti sauce simmering for 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Layer ingredients in a square baking dish and pour 1 cup of the sauce mixture on the bottom half of the pasta, provolone cheese slices, and ricotta cheese spread over the provolone cheese. Then add half of the remaining sauce mixture to the remaining pasta, and mozzarella cheese. Finally pour the remaining sauce over dish, and top with parmesan cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes and you may want to bake it on a cookie sheet to prevent splatters in your oven. Serve with crusty bread and a salad, if desired.
