Baked Ziti

A yummy, meatless pasta dish.

  • 1 pound uncooked ziti or penne pasta
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 Tablespoons red cooking wine
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces Muenster cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook ziti/penne according to package directions (usually 10 to 15 minutes). Drain thoroughly and place in a large bowl. Add olive oil and toss to coat well. Set aside.

Combine the tomato sauce, basil, oregano, red cooking wine and pepper. Pour over pasta and mix well.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Spread half of the pasta in the bottom of a large, shallow baking dish (such as a 9×13-inch lasagna pan). Sprinkle on half the Muenster cheese. Spread on the remaining pasta, sprinkle on remaining Muenster, and finally top with the Parmesan cheese.

Cover tightly with foil. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
