Ziti with Bolognese

 


Time seems to be flying by so quickly anymore.  My babies are growing up so fast… well, okay, so they’re 9 and 5.  But they’ll always be my babies.

While I love getting all crazy and adventurous in the kitchen there is always room for simple meals.  That doesn’t mean simple can’t be delicious and homemade.  That’s why I keep some meal components in the freezer to help make a quick dinner that’s still homemade and make my hubby smile.  (Bolognese is at the very tippy top on his list of favorite things too).
This is perfect with a big salad and maybe even homemade baguettes or garlic bread.

ZITI WITH BOLOGESE
1 lb ziti, cooked just underdone
1 quart Bolognese (or your favorite spaghetti sauce)
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 T oil
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper

1/2 grated Parmesan
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, cut chiffonade, optional

Mix the ricotta, oil, salt, and pepper together in another bowl and set aside.

Dollop the ricotta mixture over pasta in pan.

Top with remaining pasta mixture and then sprinkle the cheeses over the top.  Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.
