I realize with warmer weather here these days that heavy pasta dishes are probably not at the top of your family’s menu planning list.
However. If there’s a Godfather marathon scheduled for any time soon, you’ll want to have the perfect dinner on hand. So here it is…
1/2 lb. pork sausage
1/2 lb. ground chuck
1 lb. package ziti cooked according to package
2-3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 very large bottle Prego Traditional Pasta Sauce
1 small container ricotta cheese
1 egg (beaten)
8 oz. sour cream
1 to 1 ½ teaspoon dried Italian spices
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
Brown both meats in a very large skillet.
Drain meats and return to skillet.
Add sauce and heat.
Transfer to very large pot or mixing bowl.
Add cooked ziti.
In a 9X13 pan or larger, place 1/2 of pasta meat sauce mixture.
In another bowl, (you wreck your whole kitchen on this one) mix ricotta cheese ,1/2 cup parmesan cheese, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, sour cream, beaten egg and all spices.
Place this mixture over the first layer of pasta and meat sauce, spread evenly
Place the rest of the pasta meat sauce mixture over this white creamy phenomenon.
Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella on top.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
Take foil off and bake 20-25 more minutes until hot and bubbly.
Serve with plenty of garlic bread and watch your cholesterol sky rocket!
