Baked Ziti

This is a good recipe to freeze, it makes a lot, and is very tasty.  Next time I will divide it into two 8x8 pans as I am on an anti-leftovers track here.  Just look at all that cheese!  You could also add mini meatballs or cooked and seasoned ground beef if you aren't into that meatless thing...

Baked Ziti
1/2 pound ziti pasta
16 oz. small curd cottage cheese
3 c. shredded mozzarella
3 c. marinara sauce - homemade or jarred
1/2 c. grated parmesan

Boil ziti in salted water til al dente and drain. Mix it with 1/2 the mozzarella and all of the cottage cheese.  Spray a 13x9 pan (or two 8x8's) with Pam.  Pour 1/2 the sauce into the dish.  Layer in the ziti.  Top with the second half of sauce.  Sprinkle with parmesan and rest of mozzarella.  *Cover with Pam sprayed foil and freeze here*
Admire your handiwork - this is gonna be good!
To cook:  Thaw in fridge.  Uncover and bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes til bubbly.

Yum.  Cheesy saucy pasta served with a salad and a smile  (:
