This is a very popular recipe in our family and I make it a lot. It’s one of those dishes that taste even better as leftovers. And since it cooks up a nice, big batch its perfect for a family get-together or to bring for a potluck.
Easy No-Boil Baked Ziti Recipe
2 jars of pasta sauce
15 oz container of ricotta cheese
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 cups shredded mozzarella
16 oz box of ziti
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix everything EXCEPT half the mozzarella cheese in a large casserole dish.
Add in one jar of water* and stir well.
Cover the casserole and bake for approximately an hour and 15 minutes. Remove cover and top with remaining mozzarella. Return to oven and baked uncovered for 15 minutes or until cheese is nice and bubbly.
I like to serve it with a salad and Garlic Cheese Crescent Rolls.
*To make sure I don’t miss a single drop of sauce, I fill one of the empty jars 2/3 full with water, put on the lid and shake it really well. I then pour that water into the other jar. I then put on the lid and shake that one. I fill the 2nd jar the rest of the way to the top and then add it to the rest of the mixture.
