Ziti Pasta Eggs Whole-Milk Ricotta Mozzarella Cheese Parmesan Cheese Marinara Sauce

Bring water to a boil and cook the pasta. While the pasta cooks, mix together all of the ricotta mixture.

Let's Make It!

In a large baking dish, spread some of the marinara sauce, then top with half of the cooked pasta.

Next, layer on the cheese filling, followed by half of the sauce, then the remaining pasta, marinara and mozzarella cheese.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until hot throughout. Then allow to cool slightly before serving and enjoy!

Can I Make This Ahead Of Time?

Yes! To make ahead of time, assemble the casserole as directed, but do not bake. Make sure the dish has completely cooled first, then cover securely with plastic wrap. Add an additional layer of foil on top, and freeze up to 3 months.
