Ziti Lasagna

"Most lasagnas have too much salt and fat for me, so I came up with this version, notes Dorothea Rickner of Rochester, New York. Its fairly easy to prepare and goes great with a salad and toasted garlic bread."

  1. Cook ziti according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and pepper. Cook and stir until heated through, about 3 minutes.
  2. Drain pasta. Spread half of the meat sauce in a 1-qt. baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Top with half of the ziti, ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

This was really good. I did prepare it a bit differently though. First I skipped the green pepper and added about 4 cloves of chopped garlic instead. I cooked the garlic with the onion for ab...

Yum! Very good recipe - I would definitely suggest doubling the tomato sauce though because it did bake up a bit dry. I also used fresh garlic in addition to the garlic powder and upped the it...
