Made a version of ziti instead of baking it in typical way, i cook it through a casserole it's the same procedure but it's much easier to prep. Baked ziti is always the family's favorite and husband's specialty also. That's why i was inspired to cook this pasta, main reason is because of him! I have to beat him in cooking you know, lol. Anyway, here's how:


half box ziti
8-10 cherry tomatoes
a tbsp sour cream
half cup mushrooms chopped
1 medium onion
1can spaghetti sauce
1/2 lbs ground beef
4 slice sargento cheese
salt and pepper to taste
fresh basil for garnish


Bring ziti pasta to boil. In a casserole brown meat and drain excess oil then sauteed onions and tomatoes. Add the pasta sauce let it simmer for 5 minutes. Add sour cream and stir till mix well. Add the cooked pasta stir let it cooked for another 3 minutes. Lastly, top it with cheese and cover set aside till cheese melts to perfection! That's it!

Enjoy cooking!
