Ingredients

How to make it

  • Prepare ziti as directed on box; drain well.
  • 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.
