A hearty baked dish with Ziti pasta, italian sasuage, lots of cheese and tomatoes.
Ingredients (serves 6)
You will also need: casserole dish
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.
