Baked Ziti - very easy and good when you need a large dish!
This photo might not look the best because this was after several servings were removed. Better ones to follow!!
16 oz. pkg. ziti (or rigatoni, etc.), cooked & drained
16 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
2 c. cottage cheese
approx. 45 oz. jar spaghetti sauce (I like Prego)
1 tsp. oregano
salt & pepper
1 lb. ground beef, cooked & drained
In a very large bowl - combine the drained ziti with half of the cheese. Then, add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Place in a 9 x 13 pan. Top with the remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
See how easy!!!!
This is the pasta boiling --
All (but half of the cheese) mixed in a very large bowl --
Put in a 9 x 13 pan/dish --
Remaining half of cheese sprinkled on top --
Baked and ready to serve --
Goes great with bread sticks (and a salad, too) --
Lucy is not taking too kindly to all the storms we have had lately. She is hiding even if it just starts to rain!! I think she wants to be in her hiding place - just in case!!! But, really - do you call that hiding???

I have been loving reading other blogs for a while. I thought that maybe if I was accountable by posting on a blog that I might accomplish more. We will see! Here are some of my current "loves" (besides blogs): decorating for all holidays, crafting, cooking and baking, traveling, shopping, some reality shows, Dancing with the Stars, Real Housewives, getting together with my "YaYa" girlfriends,and most of all My Family!!
