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
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.
