Ingredients

1 lb. Ziti pasta
1 lb. ground meat (your choice)
chopped onion (eye it)
chopped bell pepper (eye it)
12 oz ricotta cheese
2 eggs - Beaten
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tbsp parsley
1 jar spaghetti sauce
8 oz (2 cups) mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 350. Cook pasta according to package direction. Drain and rinse under cold water, drain again. Brown meat with onion and bell peppers, drain and add sauce. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, eggs, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and parsley. Mix to blend well. Toss Ziti with 2 cups of sauce mixture. Place half the pasta in a baking dish (13x9 is too big, and a 9.5 x 11 is too small. I ended up using like a round 3 qt. casserole dish) Top with ricotta mixture and half the mozzarella. Then put in the rest of the pasta, sauce mixture, mozzarella, and Parmesan. Bake 30-35 minutes.
