How to Make Fat Man's Ziti

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook hamburger with onions, rosemary, red pepper & garlic. Drain & add pasta sacue. Simmer while pasta cooks.
  2. Boil pasta in salted water till al dente.
  3. Remove meat mixture from heat & stir in drained noodles.
  4. Mix together sour cream & cottage cheese.
  5. Layer half the noodle/meat mixture in the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
  6. Distribute spinach evenly over the top then sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
  7. Sprinkle with about 1/2 the shredded mozzerella and smooth sour cream/cottage cheese mixture over top.
  8. Add remaining noodle/meat mixture.
  9. Top with remaining mozzerella & bake at 350 till brown & bubbly.
  10. This fills a 9x13 pan to the point of over-flowing. If you have a larger/deeper lasagna pan I would probably use it. The last time I made this I had a little juice spill over in my oven :(
