Ingredients

  • 12 ounce(s) uncooked ziti
  • 2 teaspoon(s) olive oil
  • 2 clove(s) garlic minced
  • ⅓ pound(s) raw lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon(s) dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon(s) dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon(s) dried rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon(s) salt
  • ½ teaspoon(s) black pepper
  • 28 ounce(s) canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup(s) part-skim mozzarella cheese shredded

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. 2. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside.

  3. 3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat; add garlic and saute 2 minutes. Add beef and cook until browned, breaking up meat with a spoon as it cooks, about 3 to 5 minutes; drain off any fat and set pan back over medium heat.

  4. 4. Add oregano, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper; stir to coat beef. Cook until herbs become fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

  5. 5. Spoon a small amount of beef-tomato mixture into bottom of a 4-quart casserole dish; top with half of cooked ziti. Next, layer with half of remaining beef-tomato sauce and half of mozzarella cheese. Layer with remaining ziti and then top with remaining beef-tomato sauce; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.

  6. 6. Bake until cheese is golden and bubbly, about 30 minutes. Slice into 8 pieces and serve.
