- Heat pasta sauce in pan, adding sugar, garlic salt or powder, and onions, adjusting seasoning to your taste.
- In a separate bowl, beat eggs and stir in cheeses and parsley.
- Prepare meatball recipe and cook meatballs to almost done (leaving them just a little underdone will prevent overbaking when baking the casserole).
- In a large roasting pan or similar pan, spread some of the pasta sauce in the bottom of the pan.
- Mix remaining sauce with the cooked ziti and then place ½ of the ziti mixture in the bottom of the pan on top of the sauce layer.
- Drop/spread the ricotta cheese mixture over the ziti layer.
- Place the remaining half of ziti mixture over the cheese layer.
- Place the meatballs over the top of the ziti mixture.
- Cover meatball layer with the 2 cups Italian cheeses.
- Bake at 325 degrees until heated through and bubbly – about 45 minutes to an hour.
