Baked Ziti

1 lb of Ziti pasta or you can use Penne
1 Onion, chopped
2 TSP of minced garlic
1 lb lean ground beef
1 1/2 jars of spaghetti sauce of your choice
1 C. Sour Cream
1 C. Ricotta cheese
2- 3 C. of Shredded mozzerella cheese

Set the oven to 375.  Boil your pasta until cooked.  Saute onion and garlic until tender, add your meat and cook until no longer pink.  Dump spaghetti sauce into the meat mixture and mix well.  (Oh, I usually add a bit of garlic salt, pepper and italian seasoning to it as well.)  Spray your pan or casserole dish with cooking spray real well then add your cooked pasta noodles, dump the sauce/meat mixture on top of the noodles and make sure you mix the noodles in it really well so they don’t get dry.  Sprinkle some parmesan over that, mix your sour cream and ricotta together in a small bowl and then spread that over what you’ve already put in the casserole dish.  Sprinkle some mozzerella and then another layer of the noodles and sauce, another layer of the parmesan and sour cream/ricotta and cheese, etc etc… you can really layer it however you want.  I usually just make sure the last layer is topped with a bunch of shredded cheese and Parmesan!

Cover with foil and cook for about 30 minutes or until heated throughout and cheeses are melted.
