Easy Ziti Bake

Susan Feliciano


Easy to throw together, and only one dish and one cooking pot. You can also add mushrooms, onions, peppers, whatever, if you like; but I was trying to keep this at 6 ingredients or less.

How to Make Easy Ziti Bake


  • 1Place meatballs and spaghetti sauce in a dish that can go in the microwave and the oven. It should hold about 2 quarts. Cover and microwave about 4 minutes on high, to heat sauce and meatballs.
  • 2Cook Ziti pasta according to package directions, then drain.
  • 3Stir cottage cheese into meatball-spaghetti mixture until well blended. Then stir in the cooked Ziti until it is distributed evenly.
  • 4Top evenly with shredded mozzarella, then sprinkle Parmesan on top. Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly and cheese is melted and starting to brown. This takes about 30-40 minutes.
  • 5Serve with tossed salad and garlic bread.
