Great dish you can also bake in individual dishes and serve for an upscale presentation.


1 pound ziti
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large yellow onion
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound lean ground beef
3 cloves garlic; minced
1/2 cup fresh oregano; chopped
26 ounces pasta sauce
1/2 cup parmesan cheese; grated
15 ounces ricotta
10 ounces frozen spinach; thawed and drained
1 cup mozzarella; grated

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



1. Cook ziti according to the package instructions.

2. Heat oven to 400.

3. In a large pot, over med-low heat, heat the oil. Add onion, salt & pepper. Cover & cook until the onion is softened, 5-7 minutes. Add the beef, increase heat to med-high, and cook until no trace of pink remains, 5-8 minutes. Drain any remaining liquid.

4. Add the garlic & oregano (if using) and cook for 2 minutes. Add the pasta sauce & heat for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the cooked pasta and toss to coat.

5. Add the parmesan, ricotta & spinach and toss again. Spread the mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish or individual ramekins and sprinkle with the mozzarella.

6. Bake until the mozzarella melts, about 15 minutes.
