  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a boil. Stir in ziti pasta and return to a boil. Cook pasta, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain.
  3. Combine egg, ricotta cheese, and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese in a bowl. Spread 1/3 the spaghetti sauce in prepared baking dish. Top with 1/2 the pasta, 1/2 the ricotta mixture, 1/3 the spaghetti sauce, 1/2 the mozzarella cheese, and 1/2 the Parmesan cheese; repeat layers. Top with remaining spaghetti sauce and Parmesan cheese; cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until heated through, 45 to 50 minutes.

Yes I liked Baked Ziti number one. Plus the picture doesn't go with the recipe ingredients. They should match.

This was very tasty! I made it for my parents and my Dad couldn't stop eating it. I ground beef to make it a bit more hearty. I also didn't layer it, I just threw it all together and it turned o...

Made this for dinner tonight. It was really good, but not to die for. I did follow the directions to a T because I've never made baked Ziti before. I found that the layers didn't really melt ...

This was delicious and the whole family really enjoyed it! Easy to prepare. I did add some sauteed onion and garlic for some extra flavor :)

First of all I added meat to the sauce and to offset the increase in mass and density I doubled up on mozzerella, added 22 ounces of rocatta instead of 15, and doubled up on the sauce. This is ...

This was a wonderful recipe. Ended up having it two nights in a row (no leftovers.) All 4 of us thought it was great. Could use a little seasoning but other than that I wouldn't change a thing!
