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.

    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!
