Baked Beef Ziti

Submitted by: LORIBABII


Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    12 oz uncooked ziti
    2 tsp olive oil
    2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
    1/3 pound(s) raw lean ground beef
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp dried thyme
    1 tsp dried rosemary
    1/2 tsp table salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    28 oz canned crushed tomatoes
    1 cup(s) part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.


Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside.


Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat; add garlic and sauté 2 minutes. Add beef and cook until browned, breaking up meat with a spoon as it cooks, about 3 to 5 minutes; drain off any fat and set pan back over medium heat.


Add oregano, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper; stir to coat beef. Cook until herbs become fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.


Spoon a small amount of beef-tomato mixture into bottom of a 4-quart casserole dish (just enough to cover surface); top with half of cooked ziti. Next, layer with half of remaining beef-tomato sauce and half of mozzarella cheese. Layer with remaining ziti and then top with remaining beef-tomato sauce; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake until cheese is golden and bubbly, about 30 minutes.

Slice into 8 pieces and serve. Yields 1 piece per serving
