Best Ziti Ever Recipe


 1 (16 ounce) package ziti pasta
 1 pound mild Italian sausage, casings removed
 2 (24 ounce) jars marinara sauce
 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil, divided
 12 ounces ricotta cheese
 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, divided
 1 dash salt and pepper
 1 pound mozzarella cheese, shredded


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

2. Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside. In a large saucepan, heat marinara with 1 teaspoon basil until bubbling. In a medium bowl, mix together ricotta, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.

3. Spread bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish with sauce. Layer 1/2 of the ziti, 1/2, the sausage, 1/2 of the ricotta, and 1/2 the mozzarella. Spoon half of the sauce over top. Repeat layers. Sprinkle top with remaining 1/2 teaspoons basil and Italian seasoning.

4. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes.
