Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 10 mins
Bake time 30 mins
Yield Makes 8 to 10 servings
Serve this easy baked pasta alongside grilled chicken, beef, or pork, or as a meatless main dish.


  • 1 (16-oz.) package ziti pasta
  • 2 (10-oz.) containers Alfredo sauce
  • 1 (8-oz.) container sour cream
  • 1 (15-oz.) container ricotta cheese
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese

How to Make It

  1. Cook ziti according to package directions; drain and return to pot.

  2. Stir together Alfredo sauce and sour cream; toss with ziti until evenly coated. Spoon half of ziti mixture into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

  3. Stir together ricotta cheese and next 3 ingredients; spread evenly over pasta mixture. Spoon remaining pasta mixture evenly over ricotta cheese layer; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

  4. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until bubbly.

  5. Note: Ziti pasta is shaped in long, thin tubes; penne or rigatoni pasta may be substituted. For testing purposes only, we used refrigerated Buitoni Alfredo Sauce.

Cook's Notes
