How to Make It

The BEST Baked Ziti in no time at all!  

Serve with your favorite salad, and Bruschetta as an appetizer!

Cook the pasta noodles
Preheat the oven to 400° and bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta to the pot and boil until just al dente. Drain and return to the pot.

Add the bolognese sauce to the cooked pasta in the pot and stir to coat it thoroughly. Add the ricotta in large dollops and stir gently, leaving it in large clumps. Pour half of the pasta into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and top with half of the mozzarella and Parmesan. Repeat with the remaining pasta and cheeses.


  • One 32-oz container of Grandma Jan’s Beef or Turkey Bolognese Sauce

  • One pound (1 box) ziti or penne…or even farfalle

  • 1 lb fresh mozzarella

  • ¼ cup Parmesan (shredded or grated)

  • P1 ½ cups fresh ricotta (12-14 oz)




Bake on the top rack of the oven for about 15 minutes, until it is bubbling and browned. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
