Foodie Friday: Kat’s Friend’s Renowned Baked Ziti

Hello Fellow Food Adventurers,Baked Ziti

This recipe is one of my friend’s favorite dishes that I make. It is also one of my more popular posts on my food blog, Kat’s Food Adventures. This is great on its own, or you can have it as a side to meatballs or chicken. Either way, I promise your family or friends will love it as much as mine do. See how it’s done, right here!


  • 1lb ziti pasta (1 box)
  • 2 (32oz) cans of tomato sauce (I personally prefer Hunt’s Traditional)
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • pinch of fresh parsley (optional)

Oven: 400° F         Baking Time: 30 Minutes         Serving Size: 6 people

How to put it all together:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400° F
  2. Cook your pasta according to the directions on the box and drain.
  3. In a large pot, put in the tomato sauce, ricotta cheese and red pepper flakes.
  4. Toss the pasta and half of the mozzarella cheese with the tomato sauce mixture.
  5. Spray the baking dish with cooking spray.
  6. Pour the pasta and tomato sauce mixture into the baking dish and top it with the parmesan cheese and the rest of the mozzarella cheese.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle parsley on top before serving.


  • Serve with Garlic bread for dipping
  • To add protein, serve with meatballs or chicken.

Eat Well and Adventure On,
