  4. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  5. Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot and add 2 tablespoons salt (optional).
  6. Cook Ziti for 30 seconds less than the package instructions.
  7. Add Marinara Sauce, bechamel sauce, mozzarella, and grated cheese to the ziti and mix well.
  8. Divide ziti and sauce mixture among six individual gratin dishes. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
  9. Bake for about 20 minutes, until bubbling and crusty on top. Serve immediately.
