  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

This recipe is very similar to another baked ziti recipe that I make, but this one has the addition of the spinach, mushrooms and goat cheese. I only used about 3/4 container of the ricotta, which was plenty enough. I also just eye-balled the red sauce, until it looked like enough (probably a bit more than 14 oz, as my jar of marinara was 24 oz). A good, quick and easy weeknight meal. I divided it into two containers, so I could share with a neighbor. Read More

Great baked ziti recipe...as someone who loves all things with pasta and spinach, I don't understand how one reviewer can say sautéed spinach could be tough.. This recipe can be modified to include a variety of veggies.. artichokes, mushrooms, broccoli rabe.. whatever you have on hand Read More

Lots of compliments and the pasta was just right . I did not use mushrooms because my husband is not a fan so I added additional spinach. I will be making this recipe again! Read More
