Hi everyone!! I'm back with another recipe, and this is one of my own. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE pasta and the cheesier the better. This recipe is not diet friendly at all, but I decided to use turkey instead of beef in an attempt to make it healthier!
I started with cooking the ground turkey and I cooked it the same way I would've cooked the beef. I use onion, garlic and lots of Italian seasoning.
I thoroughly cook the turkey and then add a chunky pasta sauce. You can use your favorite sauce, homemade or jarred. I use jarred sauce because it makes my life so much easier, plus the 3 times I've tried making homemade sauce, it has been a fail!
While the meat is cooking, I start boiling my ziti.
While the meat cooks with the sauce and the pasta boils, I start preparing the ricotta cheese to add to the ziti, then set it aside.
Meat is looking good and you can't even tell its turkey, in my opinion!
Now to mix it all up!! I first spread sauce at the bottom of the pan, then add pasta, then add meat & then the cheese. I continue layering like this until I use all the ingredients and then I stir it all up.
Once its all mixed, I top it off with lots and lots of mozzarella cheese.
Then it goes in the oven, which I've preheated at 350 degrees, and let it cook up & melt the cheese for about 30 minutes.
Now you are ready to eat!! Everything was delicious!!
I would share the recipe, but I don't measure anything!
Hope everyone enjoyed their mother's day!
