Baked Ziti

My friend, Tracy over at Forked blogged about this dish the other week. We make it pretty regularly in this house and it definitely qualifies as Comfort Food. This dish is so easy. Ridiculously easy. I will give you measurements, but 1) we usually cut it in half because there's the 2 of us and it makes enough for 2 lunch portions for the next day and 2) once you make it once, you can make it again without looking. It is that easy and such a quick meal to make! Make a starter salad and add some bread and butter and everyone's happy!

454 g Ziti Pasta
680g Ricotta cheese (2 pots)
455 grated mozzarella cheese
1 egg, beaten
896g spagetti sauce (2 jars)
25 g grated parmesan

To Cook:
1. Cook pasta till tender
2. mix pasta, ricotta, mozzarella, egg and most of the spagetti sauce together
3. heat over to 375 F (190 C)
4. lightly grease a big enough baking dish and pour in pasta mixture
5. top with remaining spagetti sauce and sprinkle parmesan
6. bake for 30 minutes and then let stand to cool

Unfortunately, tonight's dinner of Baked Potato Soup didn't go as planned. It was too freakin' hot today. What is that about England? Fuckin' up my menu....sheesh.
