"Ziti is layered with sausage, ricotta, mozzarella and tomato sauce, then baked until bubbling."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (16 ounce) package
mild Italian sausage, casings removed
2 (24 ounce) jars
Classico® Tomato and Basil Sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons
dried basil, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons
Italian seasoning, divided
salt and pepper
mozzarella cheese, shredded
I made this using ground turkey instead of sausage to cut down a little on fat. I also made my own tomato sauce, and added some parmesan and an egg to the ricotta, then layered the whole thing like you would lasagna. I really liked the ease of assembly, versus lasagna which takes forever. I froze part of it for later, and it froze wonderfully. Such a good, easy casserole that can be made ahead of time. I adjusted seasonings a lot to suit our tastes, and used fresh garlic and onion, but the idea was the same. Thanks!
Used sliced sausage sauteed with diced onion because that is what we had on hand. Next time, we would put some oregano, garlic, and red pepper flakes.
Easy and really flavorful. I used parmesean and an egg in with the ricotta. Will definately make again.
Made lots. Family wanted more sausage
YES! So yummy. Make it!
Few changes I made: Add chopped onion, garlic and green pepper to the (hot italian) sausage when browning. Also used fresh basil in the sauce instead of dried. That's it.
So freakin' good, I will definitely make this again - in place of boring old pasta and sauce.
Yum! I'm lazy and left the casing on, sliced the sausage, cut down on the cheese (only because we were short - we LOVE cheese around here), and used fresh basil instead of dried, and it was awesome! I think it would have been just as good if I had made it per the recipe. Easy, filling crowd pleaser!
This recipe was fantastic. Everyone gave it a five and wants me to make it again. I added some more spices and some parmesan cheese along with the mozzarella.
Great recipe, I love Classico sauces! I did add egg to ricotta mix with some Italian seasonings and used ground beef instead of sausage. I think next time I will mix a little ground beef and sausage together. Thanks for the recipe!
