Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion
2 tsps. dried Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt
2 jars (apx. 25 oz. each) pasta sauce
1 container (15 oz.) ricotta cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese, divided
1 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1 box (10 oz.) ziti noodles


Cook ground beef and onions in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is no longer pink.

Stir in seasonings to evenly coat meat; stir in pasta sauce.

Set aside.

Mix 1 cup mozzarella, the ricotta and Parmesan in a medium bowl.

Spoon 2 cups of meat sauce into 5 - 6 qt. slow cooker.

Top with 2 cups ziti.

Drop half of the cheese mixture, by rounded tablespoons, over ziti; carefully spread over ziti using back of spoon.

Layer with 2 cups meat sauce, the remaining ziti and remaining cheese.

Add remaining meat sauce, completely covering all the ziti and cheese.

Place lid on slow cooker.

Cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours or HIGH for 4 to 5 hours or until noodles are tender.

Carefully remove lid to allow steam to escape.

Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup mozzarella; let stand 10 minutes until melted.
