How to Make Baked Ziti


  1. Cook ziti till almost done. Drain.
  2. Use Prego spaghetti sauce – any variety you like.
    Add cooked ground chuck, spices and diced up pepperoni to sauce ingredients.
  3. Layer cooked ziti, mozzarella cheese and spaghetti sauce in a baking dish or crock pot. Bake in oven at 400 degrees until cheese is melted – or put in a crockpot on low setting till cheese melts. If you use a crockpot on high heat, watch carefully so it doesn’t stick and/or burn.
  4. Heat throughly till bubbly and brown (if baked in oven) -- everything in it is already cooked, so just heat till hot. Serve with salad and garlic bread for a quick meal!
