Italian Sausage Baked Ziti

This is a recipe that I found on and my oldest son loved it and he has made a lot of changes to it. I'm sure mine isn't as good, but we occasionally compare notes on what we're doing differently to change it up. He puts a little wine in his, I think. Maybe this will inspire him to post his..... :-)

I am having a problem with the jar of sauce. The original recipe above calls for a 3LB jar. A regular jar of Classico sauce is 1LB 8OZ (24oz) . We are only going to use 1/2 LB of pasta. To get 3 LB of sauce you would have to use almost three jars. That would float the pasta right out of the dish. What am I missing ? I want to try this but I want to do it correctly. Thank you.

It's only 2 jars. - sfagrad83 1m ago

I loved this, but I found it easier to make my own sausage without casing, I bought two different kinds of meat grinders at second hand stores, and I find them indispensable in my cooking experience, and I believe the large Universal Meat grinder was like Three bucks, and the own I had bought before which is a smaller steel one cost two bucks, I'm happy with both.

Too much cheese, not enough meat but I think the main problem was the lack of spices and the poor instructions.

Add 1/2 pound of ground round ,bell pepper and garlic. I also used small container of mushrooms. Family favorite!!!!!!

I was totally confused on the prep of this recipe. Maybe add punctuation where it belongs and correct grammar. I am trying it the way I believe it was meant to be. Hopefully it turns out.

Made this last night and my family loved it!! I think I was a little confused on how prepare the meal into the baking dish. So I just winged it I guess. I sort of used the "lasagna" style. First a layer of sauce and sausage, then noodles, then the cheese and continue.

This dish was super easy and amazing! I added some fresh garlic cloves, italian seasoning and mixed the pasta and meat sauce together. It was a hit!
