How To Make restaurant quality baked ziti

  • 1
    Cook ziti. Drain and add to 9x13 pan. In a separate bowl combine all ingredients except RAO sauce and mozarella. Add to ziti.
  • 2
    Pour sauce over ziti and cheese mixture. Top with mozarella and cover with foil.
  • 3
    Bake at 350 for about 25-30 min. until bubbly. note: RAO is a brand of sauce sold in Walmart and nicer super markets. It is expensive but so worth it. I made this for a jewelry party I hosted and got so many compliments. I don't make it often becasue a single jar of sauce is $7 but it is soooo good!!
