Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1 teaspoon basil ; prefer fresh
  • 16 ounces ziti
  • 2 leaves spinach
  • red wine
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 10 ounces tomato sauce
  • olive oil ; first cold press
  • 1 pound beef ; 97%+
  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary ; prefer fresh
  • 3 links Italian sausage ; hot

  • You will also need: casserole dish

    Directions

    Cook the links and brown the ground beef in a healthy amount of EVOO, season ground beef as desired. Cut links in to 1/4" rounds. Dice tomatoes loosely, also chop spinach, basil, and rosemary, place all in a large bowl, drizzle with EVOO, add some parmesan and toss. (try not to eat it at this point)

    Prepare boiling water, if you are using fresh Ziti, drop in to water for about 45 seconds. If you are using dried Ziti, boil until al dente or desired texture. Strain pasta and pat dry.

    In bowl, combine Ziti with the beef, link, basil, rosemary, tomato mixture. Add in the 10oz can of tomato sauce. Mix together well.

    In a deep, 8" round casserole dish, place Ziti mixture about 1/4 up the side, now add a healthy amount of mozzarella and some parmesan, do this until you have filled the casserole dish. Your last layer should be the remaining mozzarella and parmesan.

    Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until done, I usually bake for 25 minutes. A good sign is the parmesan and mozzarella has formed a nice brown, crusty, yet soft and chewy layer on top.

    Serve with a red wine of your choice.

    Thanks for discussing your ideas on this blog. Inaddition, a mecoonsipticn regarding the banking companies intentions while talkingabout property foreclosures is that the traditional bankwill not have my repayments. There is a fair bit of time which the bank will require payments in some places.If you are too deep within the hole, they will commonlydemand that you pay that payment 100 %. However, that doesn't mean that they will not take any sort of installments at all. In the event you and the standard bank can seem to work a little something out, a foreclosure method may end. However, when you continue to miss out on payments within the new plan, the property foreclosure process can pick up exactly where it left off.

    I just added ziti to the ingredient list. I can't believe I left that out! :( The recipe sounds damn good though. :)
