    Neopolitan Baked Ziti

    Here is a great RR recipe. This is also delicious with ground sausage or ground beef. I do cheat and use my fav go to spaghetti sauce because it is easy.

    1 lb ziti pasta
    1 medium onion, diced
    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    4 garlic cloves, minced
    28 ounces plum tomatoes
    4 -5 basil leaves, torn
    3 tablespoons butter
    3 tablespoons flour
    2 cups milk
    1 bay leaf
    2 cups mozzarella cheese
    1/4 cup parmesan cheese
    fresh nutmeg
    salt and pepper

    1 Preheat oven to 350.
    2 Boil ziti just shy of al dente.
    3 Place a medium sauce pan on medium-high head and add EVOO.
    4 Cook onion and garlic 4-5 minutes, then add the tomatoes. Smash the tomatoes with the back of a large spoon, then add basil, salt and pepper and simmer 15 minutes.
    5 Heat a separate medium sauce pan on medium-high heat then add, butter and allow to melt.
    6 Add flour and brown 2-4 minutes, then stir in bay leaf, salt and pepper and cook 5 minutes on low heat. Remove bay leaf.
    7 Mix red sauce with pasta and transfer to a casserole dish.
    8 Top with white sauce, and both cheeses.
    9 Bake 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.
