The Best Baked Ziti

Baked Ziti is always a crowd pleaser! I like it simple and nice and crispy on top. 

One box of pasta should feed five people.

Here's what you need:

  • Ronzoni number 2 ziti (or any kind of ziti noodle)
  • Rao’s sauce
  • Mozzarella and parmesan cheese

Here's how to make it:

  • Let your water come to a boil and add your pasta
  • Cook your pasta for 5-7 minutes (you don’t want it to be fully cooked)
  • Place your noodles in a pan and pour ¾ of Rao’s sauce on top
  • Depending on how much pasta you have, you can do one layer of cheese on top or add one layer of pasta, one layer of mozzarella, a little bit of sauce and then add the rest of the pasta followed by the rest of your mozzarella - it's up to you! 
  • Sprinkle parmesan on top
  • Bake in the oven at 375 for 10 minutes
  • Right before you're ready to eat put it on a low broil for a minute or two so the top gets nice and crispy 
  • Enjoy!
