1 pkg

1 pkg
bulk hot italian sausage
1 pkg
ground beef (80/20)
1 pkg
hard salami, sliced
1 pkg
1 large
white onion
1 box
ziti pasta, cooked
2 can(s)
pre-made tomato/spaghetti sauce (hunt's, prego, etc.)
1 large
bag of shredded mozzarella cheese
2-3 Tbsp
(heaping) chopped garlic (the stuff in a jar is fine)

How to Make Baked Ziti


  • 1Brown the mild sausage, hot sausage, and ground beef (I like to do it separately) and put into a very large mixing bowl. Dice the salami and pepperoni and add to the bowl.
  • 2Cook the pasta until almost al dente and drain. Add to the bowl, mix in the tomato/spaghetti sauce, the garlic (to your taste), and a handful or more of the cheese (again to your taste).
  • 3Place in a very large casserole dish or any other large baking dish. Cover with more of the shredded cheese (as much or as little as you like) and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and bubbly.
