Used some cottage cheese instead of ricotta, and a little less sauce. I would add some garlic next time to the onions. Overall, very tasty!

Ingredients of Italian Sausage Baked Ziti
1/2 pound Ziti pasta cooked al dente (8 minutes) and drained
1 each Onion chopped
1 pound Italian sausage removed from casing
1 3 pound jar Spaghetti Sauce see note
4 slices Provolone cheese
8 ounces Ricotta cheese
6 ounces Mozzarella cheese shredded
2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese grated

Preparation of Italian Sausage Baked Ziti
Brown the meat and the onion and drain fat.

Return the meat and onion back to the pan and add the spaghetti sauce and simmer for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Layer ingredients in a square baking dish. 1 cup of the sauce mixture on the bottom, then half of the pasta, provolone cheese slices, ricotta cheese spread over the provolone cheese.

add half of the remaining sauce mixture, the remaining pasta, mozzarella cheese, the remaining sauce, and then top with parmesan cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes and you may want to bake it on a cookie sheet to prevent splatters in your oven.

Serve with crusty bread and a salad, if desired.
