Like all recipes on this website, I read the reviews before I dive in because I always get great tips about the recipe. This one is no different. I took the advice about cutting the recipe in half. It's just the two of us....even that was a tad much, but I blame myself. When the recipe was cut in half, the measuring amounts became odd numbers so I just rounded up to the next whole number. I didn't want to waste ingredients. I also made some substitutions based on recommendations from other reviewers to make it healthier. I changed the sour cream to plain greek yogurt. One reviewer missed the ricotta cheese so I just took my measurement of the sour cream made a mixture that was 2/3 plain greek yogurt and 1/3 reduced fat ricotta cheese. I used ground turkey instead of lean ground beef. I used reduced fat provolone slices and mozzarella cheese. I took the advice of one of the reviewers and got some quality spaghetti sauce. I was too lazy to buy additional vegetables to add to the meat sauce but that is something that you can do. I used rigatoni instead of ziti and that worked perfectly.
I followed the recipe instructions in regards to how to prepare the ziti. Quite a few of the reviewers suggested to mix the meat mixture with the noodles before you layer. I did and that was perfect. I layered in corning ware and put the lid on and put it in the oven. It came out perfect. It was lasagna with rigatoni. My boyfriend had two servings. I will make this again in a heartbeat.
