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.

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

  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.
