Baked Ziti - Recipe

During the week that my mother passed away, I had a steady delivery of meals from my Small Group.  One of those was Baked Ziti.  It was super delicious and everyone in the household thought it was a hit.  We liked it so well, I made some for supper last night.  It definitely won't be the last time we have it as a meal.  I used a recipe for Baked Ziti that I found online, with slight variation.


1 pound dry ziti pasta (I used Penne pasta)
1/2 onion, chopped
1 pound lean ground beef
2 (26 ounce) jars spaghetti sauce
1 cup cottage cheese 
1 1/2 cups sour cream
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


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

In a large skillet, brown onion and ground beef over medium heat. Add spaghetti sauce, and simmer 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Layer as follows: 1/2 of the ziti, cottage cheese, sour cream, 1/2 sauce mixture, remaining ziti, Parmesan cheese and remaining sauce mixture. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.

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