1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
2. Remove half of the meatballs and half of the sausage pieces
from the pasta sauce. Set the sauce aside. Slice the meatballs and
sausage, and set them aside.
3. Add the salt to a large pot of water and bring the water to a
boil. Add the penne or ziti and cook for 6 to 7 minutes. (The pasta
should be harder than al dente because it will continue to cook
when baked.) Drain the pasta and return it to the pot.
4. Add about 2 cups of the pasta sauce to the pot and mix with
a wooden spoon until the sauce is evenly distributed. Reserving 2
tablespoons of each cheese for the topping, add the mozzarella
and the grated cheese to the pasta, and mix with the spoon. Then, reserving 1/3 cup of each for the topping, add the slices of meatballs
and sausage. Mix gently with the wooden spoon.
5. Spoon about ½ cup of the pasta sauce over the bottom of a
lasagna pan or a 9 × 13-inch baking dish. Spoon the pasta mixture
over the sauce, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle the reserved
mozzarella, and then the reserved grated cheese, on top, and
cover the pan with aluminum foil.
6. Bake ziti until the corners are bubbling, 30 to 40 minutes.
Remove the foil and bake uncovered for 7 to 10 minutes, until the
top is lightly browned.
7. Remove the pan from the oven, cover it with foil, and let it
stand for 10 minutes. Then cut the baked penne into squares (like
lasagna), and serve with extra grated cheese and warmed pasta
sauce on the side if desired.
