Although this is similar to lasagna, it is different enough to be it's own recipe. This doesn't have meat while lasagnas generally have meat in it's layers. I didn't have Ziti noodles so I substituted Penne noodles. They are similar in shape and I was able to get the penne noodles in whole wheat.
Three Cheese Baked Ziti
1 (15 oz) container ricotta cheese
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 (16 oz) package Ziti pasta, cooked and drained
1 (26 oz) jar pasta sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, eggs and Parmesan cheese; set aside.
In the pot you cooked your noodles, combine noodles and sauce.
Line a 13 x 9 inch baking dish; spoon 1/2 the pasta mixture; evenly top with the cheese mixture, then remaining pasta mixture. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 30 minutes, until heated through. If desired, serve with additional sauce.
I found this through Ragu and made it pretty much the way the original recipe said. I lined the baking dish for easier cleanup although the original recipe didn't say to. I just don't like having to wash dishes and anything to make cleanup easier makes my life easier.
Flavor Rating: Great, I like the ricotta mixture better in this baked ziti than in a lasagna.
Ease of Preparation: Easy, I can't find a recipe that's much easier.
