Baked Ziti - Healthy?
Here's the main ingredients from my Baked Ziti:
Two jars of Barilla Al Forno baking sauce:
One 16oz package of Bionaturae Organic Whole Wheat Rigatone:
2 packages of Horizon Organic Part Skim Mozzarella:
12oz of Al Fresco Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage:
I also had some fresh flat leaf parsley, fresh garlic and about 2/3 cup of ricotta cheese.
I diced up the sausage and browned it up in a pan.
I cooked the pasta, added in the bottles of sauce and the sausage, squeezed in 5 cloves of garlic, about 1/4 cup of minced parsley and the ricotta cheese, and then put half the mixture into a baking pan. Then I spread mozzarella over the layer, and then added the rest of the pasta and spread it out. Then topped with more cheese.
Then it was baked at 375 for about 1/2 hour. The result:
It was very good, too!
