My friend Courtney asked me for my baked ziti recipe recently. I had made it probably 5 years ago and then totally forgot about it. I didn't have the recipe anymore, so I've created a new one. This is just for you Courtney (ok fine, everyone else can have the recipe too).
One Year Ago: Almond Cake for Spring
Recipe can easily be halved
- 900 g rigatoni or similar tubular pasta
- 500 g lean ground beef
- 650 ml jar of your favourite thick and chunky pasta sauce*
- 2 tomatoes, diced
- 500 ml cottage cheese
- 200 g mozzarella cheese, sliced
- 200 g provolone cheese, sliced
*I used this sauce that I love and buy all the time, but it was too thin. You want a hearty sauce here.
