I devised this recipe through taking a couple I found and adding some extra things in I like. Everybody went nuts, said it was a real "gut buster" lol!

How to Make Fat Man's Ziti

  • 2Boil pasta in salted water till al dente.
  • 3Remove meat mixture from heat & stir in drained noodles.
  • 4Mix together sour cream & cottage cheese.
  • 5Layer half the noodle/meat mixture in the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
  • 6Distribute spinach evenly over the top then sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
  • 7Sprinkle with about 1/2 the shredded mozzerella and smooth sour cream/cottage cheese mixture over top.

  • 9Top with remaining mozzerella & bake at 350 till brown & bubbly.
  • 10This 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 :(
