Submitted by: SILVERLINEDJENN

Introduction

From skinnytaste.com From skinnytaste.com
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    12 oz uncooked pasta such as ziti
    28 oz crushed tomatoes (I prefer Tuttorosso)
    1 tsp olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    10 oz frozen spinach, thawed
    1 tsp oregano
    2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
    salt and fresh pepper to taste
    8 oz fat-free ricotta (original recipe -- I used part skim for nutritional info, as it is what I could find)
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    2 cups (8 oz) shredded part skim mozzarella (I love Polly-O)
    olive oil cooking spray (I used my Misto)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°.Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with oil spray.

In a large pot of salted water, cook pasta according to instructions until al dente. Drain and return to pot.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, add olive oil and sauté garlic. Add chopped spinach, salt pepper and chopped tomatoes. Season with basil, oregano, salt and pepper.

Add sauce to the pasta and combine the ziti. Add half of the mozzarella, Parmesan cheese and ricotta. Mix well then transfer to the baking pan.

Pour the pasta mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Top with the remaining mozzarella.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until mozzarella is melted and the edges are lightly browned. Let it cool 5 minutes, then cut it into 8 equal portions.
