    Baked Ziti

    Source of Recipe


    1 cup chopped onion
    1 cup chopped green pepper
    1 cup chopped red pepper
    1 1/2 cups chopped mushrooms, any type
    4 garlic cloves, chopped
    1 t dried basil
    salt and black pepper to taste
    1 (14.5 oz) can chopped tomatoes, undrained
    1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
    7 cups torn spinach (I used an entire 10 oz bag-about 8 cups)
    3 cups hot cooked ziti (about 2.5 cups uncooked)
    1 cup part skim ricotta
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan

    Saute onion and bell peppers in 1 T oil for 5 min. Add mushrooms and garlic; saute 2 min. Stir in basil through tomato sauce, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 min or until slightly thick. Stir in spinach; cook 1 min or until wilts. Stir in pasta. Spoon into a 13x9" dish coated with cooking spray. Dollop with ricotta. Cover and bake at 375 for 20 min. Uncover; sprinkle with parmesan. Bake an additional 5 min or until lightly browned. Serves 6.

    I made this as directed, but I think next time, I'm going to mix the ricotta in instead of dolloping it on top.
