Baked Ziti 1-2-3
|6 oz||uncooked ziti pasta|
|any type of pasta works- you may use gluten-free brands!|
|2||6-ounce cans v-8 juice|
|1 c||ricotta cheese (optional)|
|1 lb||frozen or homemade meatballs|
|1-2 tsp||mixed italian herbs (optional)|
|1 jar(s)||favorite spaghetti sauce|
|1 c||shredded mozzarella cheese|
|1/4 c||grated parmesan cheese|
This is so easy, and quick to put together. But be sure to allow an hour total for it to be ready to serve. You can also bake garlic bread in the oven with it, and prepare a green salad, and your meal is done! Be sure to have some Italian Gelato on hand for dessert.
For a gluten-free version, use gluten free pasta, and meatballs made with GF breadcrumbs or oats.
Karen Workman adds this Crockpot variation:
I prepared this in the Crockpot...left in on high for about 2 hours, then put it under the broiler for about 10 minutes to brown the cheese. It worked perfectly and was very yummy!
