Baked ziti

This recipe uses already prepared spaghetti sauce but you can use your own. Just use 3 cups of your sauce in place of the called for sauce.

What you’ll need:

1 lb ziti pasta, cooked to desired tenderness (remember it will cook more in the oven so don’t overcook it)
1 onion, chopped
6 oz provolone cheese, sliced
1 lb ground beef
1 ½ c sour cream
2 (26 oz) jars spaghetti sauce
6 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tbl parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, brown beef and onion over medium heat. Drain and return to pan. Stir in spaghetti sauce and simmer for 15 minutes. Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Layer in the following order: ½ the ziti, provolone cheese, sour cream, 1 jar of sauce, other ½ of ziti, mozzarella cheese, other jar of sauce, parmesan sprinkled across top. Bake for 30 minutes or until cheeses are melted. Makes 10 servings.
