No Pot Creamy Ziti
  • 1 9- x 13-inch pan
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound penne pasta (raw)
  • 1 (26 ounce) jar pasta sauce
  • ¾ - 1 (26 ounce) jar water (after emptying the sauce)
  • 12 ounces (about 1 ½ cups) cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Add the pasta in a even layer to a 9- x 13-inch baking pan.
  3. Add salt and sauce. Fill the jar with water (either ¾ to completely full) and add to the pan.
  4. Add most of the cheese and mix to combine. Add more cheese on top (or mix all of it in). Cover and bake for 90 minutes (then leave the house and come home to a hot fresh dish!).
  5. If you like it crisp, uncover and bake a little longer to let the top brown and bubble and noodles crisp up a bit.
