I was going to make the Party Pasta Bowl recipe from Pampered Chef but decided to change it just a bit. Although some of my kids were skeptical to try it (because it was something new), they loved it. It did turn out quite yummy!
Chel's Ziti Pasta
1 package uncooked ziti pasta
1/4 c. chopped onion
1 lb. lean ground beef (I always get the leanest ground beef I can find)
3 garlic cloves, pressed
2 ts. Italian Seasoning
1 jar/can (24 oz.) spaghetti sauce
1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained (I like to get the ones with seasoning in them)
2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 ts. parsley
1/4 ts. black pepper
2 Tbs. Parmesan cheese
1. Boil pasta according to package directions. Drain when fully cooked. Cook ground beef, add chopped onion and pressed garlic. Cook until beef is fully cooked. Remove from heat. Add Italian seasoning, tomatoes and spaghetti sauce. Lightly beat egg, then add to meat mixture. Add mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, parsley and pepper. Mix sauce with pasta in large bowl, pour into 9x13 stone baker and add more mozzarella cheese on top. Bake at 450 degrees for 25 min.
