Easy Two Cheese Baked Ziti

I have frequented a local pizzeria for years they serve the best-baked ziti. I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to serve baked ziti at a dinner I was hosting.  I searched the internet for easy baked ziti, unfortunately, I didn’t find a recipe for exactly what I wanted… So, I experimented and have successfully adapted a recipe! It was a hit at my party and super easy to make.  I picked up most of the ingredients from my local FoodLion.



1lb bag of mozzarella
2 8oz jars pasta sauce (I used sauce I canned last semester)
1 16oz box Barilla Zita Pasta
13.07 box of vegetable broth
15oz container of ricotta cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Boil pasta (use the entire box). Once the post has boiled strain the pasta, then place the pasta in a large bowl.
  3. In the same large bowl, mix in the containers of pasta sauce, a box of vegetable broth, ½ the mozzarella, and the container of ricotta cheese. Mix the ingredients together using a spoon until everything is evenly mixed.


  1. Place the pasta mixture into a 9×12 baking pan.   Spread evenly into the pan.
  2. Top the pasta mixture in the pan with the remaining mozzarella.


  1. Cook at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
  2. Serve!
