  • olive oil cooking spray

  • 1 (16 ounce) package ziti pasta

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ (8 ounce) package fresh spinach, chopped

  • 1 (4 ounce) package fresh mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 (15 ounce) container part-skim ricotta cheese

  • 1 (8 ounce) package crumbled goat cheese

  • ½ (8 ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1 (14 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add ziti and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute spinach and mushrooms in the hot oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add to ziti.

  4. Add ricotta cheese, goat cheese, and 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese to the ziti mixture; combine thoroughly. Mix in spaghetti sauce and transfer to the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.

  5. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until bubbly and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Preferably use a spaghetti sauce made with red wine.
