Recipe for Baked Ziti with Dreamfields???

I'm looking for a baked ziti recipe for Christmas Eve dinner. I'd love a tried and true family recipe that everyone raves about. I can just substitute Dreamfields Penne pasta for the ziti noodles pasta and serve with a big salad and bread.
Thanks!
Pam

This is just decadent and so good

BAKED ZITI

1 lb of dry ziti pasta
1 onion chopped
1 lb ground beef
2 jars of spagetti sauce (I use Bella Vita LC)
6 oz provolone cheese, sliced
1/1/2 cups sour cream (I used Crema Mexicana)
6 ox. shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tbs grated parmesan cheese

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add Dreamfields Ziti and cookper package directions
In a large skillet brown onion, and ground beeef over med. heat. Add spaghetti sauce and simmer 15 minutes
Preheat the oven to 350. Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Layer as follows !/2 ziti, 1/2 provolone cheese,1/2 sour cream, 1/2 sauce mixture, Then remaining ziti, mozzarella and remaining suace mixture.

Bake for 30 minutes in the oven or until all the cheeses are melted.

This is unbelievably good.

Oh man, I love this stuff.

Sometimes I will make it with homemade sauce and other times I will use a good jarred.

This is what I do.

Boil pasta, drain and set aside. Brown hamburger, drain and add jarred sauce. Season to taste and add a few red pepper flakes.
In a separate bowl get some ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, garlic and parsley and mix together. Also get some mozzarella.

Mix together the meat sauce and pasta and put a layer on the bottom of the dish. Then add random dollops of the ricotta cheese mixture - try to spread. Sprinkle with mozzarella and repeat with more pasta, etc. Top last layer with a sprinkling of mozzarella.

Bake until heated through and golden brown and bubbly on the top.

SO GOOD.

Hey! I've been brainstorming! I was thinking ziti would be something I can make ahead and just heat up, plus for 18-20 people, I think I'd need about 4-5 roasts...4-5 crock pots...I guess ziti just sounded easier and cheaper!
Nothing is in stone yet though! I'm going to try some of these recipes on this thread and then we'll decide!

Love ya!

Julie, that recipe sounds awesome. I called DH to have him pick up some Dreamfield's on his way home from work... I'm making it tonight! Thanks

My recipe is almost identical to SCOTTSDALEJULIE's, and I can vouch that it is GOOD!

I did make this tonight! I didn't use the ground beef and onion, because I already had some homemade meat sauce and used it instead. This was wonderful! My family loved it... It's a keeper. Thank you Julie!

I am so glad that you enjoyed it. Did you use the sour cream or the Crema Mexicana? If you see this in the Hispanic section of the store, get it and try it , but, both are excellent.

Crema is great. I always use it in Mexican recipes. Never thought about for Italian. Sounds delish

Here's the recipe I've made several times. Must be from the recipe room?? Leftovers are even better, but I think this is VERY tasty and my whole family will eat this. Completely fills a 9x13 and serves at least 10-12. Here is the original recipe as I got it. (warning, the layer instructions are a bit confusing but I basically do about three layers of 1/3-1/3-1/3. Also, I prepared mine in advance, refrigerated it, and cooked it for longer since it started out cold. )

"Dreamfields Baked Ziti YUMMM and the pan lasts me 4 days...

3/4 box Dreamfields penne
1 lb hamburger meat
1 jar Ragu Light sauce
40 pepperoni slices
4 cups of mozzerella cheese
1 large container of cottage cheese
1 large container of Philly "whipped" garlic and herb cream cheese (stewcarol uses brick cr cheese--lower carb)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 can of mushrooms

I mix the cottage cheese (small curd, you could also use ricotta, I just don't like it) and the cream cheese and the parm cheese and 1 cup of the mozzerella in a bowl...

Boil the pasta
Cook hamburger and drain, add ragu light and mushrooms
Line the bottom of a 13x9 inch pan with pepperoni then spoon on about 1/4 of the "cheese" mixture...
Spoon about 1/2 of the hamburger mixture on
Add a layer of cooked pasta
Add a layer of 1 cup of just mozz cheese
Repeat, pepperoni, cheese mixture, hamburger mixture, rest of pasta....
add rest of cheese mixture, rest of meat mixture, rest of your mixtures and top with the rest (2 cups) of mozz cheese....
top with pepperoni slices to make the top look like pizza

Cover and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes
Then uncover until top is golden brown (may have to put on broil for just a minute or so)"
