Baked ziti is an Italian Night staple. Paired with some garlic bread, the carbs fill you up and make your stomach a happy camper. I haven't been making enough food the last couple nights and Tyler was never full. Trust me when I say this will fill them up!


Easy Peasy Baked Ziti

Serves 6-8


  • 12 oz ziti or other tube pasta of your choice 3/4 lb

  • 2 lb ground beef

  • 1 - 24oz jar pasta sauce

  • 2 garlic cloves minced

  • 2 eggs beaten

  • 1 - 15oz container ricotta cheese

  • 2 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese grated


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and spray a 9x13 inch baking sheet with nonstick spray.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add your noodles. Boil until slightly undercooked.

  3. In the meantime, brown your beef in a large skillet and break into super small pieces. Once completely browned, add in your 24oz pasta sauce and 2 garlic cloves. Take off the heat and set aside.

  4. In a large bowl, add your 2 beaten eggs, 15oz ricotta cheese, 1 1/2 cup mozzarella, and 1/2 cup Parmesan. Mix together with your drained pasta.

  5. In alternating layers, add 1/3 of your beef, 1/2 of your noodles, 1/3 beef, 1/2 noodles, and remaining beef.

  6. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 40-45 minutes or until bubbling and a center reads 160F.

  7. Remove from oven and top with remaining mozzarella cheese. Replace in oven and bake for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melty.

  8. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Top with additional parmesan and serve with garlic bread!
