How To Make baked pasta

  • 1
    brown the ground beef, allow juices to evaporate and add onion, garlic and salt and pepper to taste
  • 2
    have your quick sauce simmering on another burner
  • 3
    Cook pasta accordingly, but aldente, the pasta will cook more when baked, if you like a softer pasta, by all means cook it longer, drain-place back in pot and add some sauce just enough to coat the pasta
  • 4
    While pasta is cooking in a bowl add your ricotta, mozzerella, egg, cheese salt and pepper to tatse. I add the egg along with mozzerella to hold the ricotta while baking (shouldn't be runny).

    In a baking dish add some sauce to the bottom and start layering some pasta-all the ground beef-small amount of sauce spread over beef-pasta-ricotta mix-rest of the pasta. Add sauce on top and top with grated cheese and mozzerella. Bake until you have a nice golden color.
