Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Baked Ziti

Hubby likes to make the San Giorgio Baked Ziti (original recipe, Baked Ziti (SG) can be found at San Giorgio Recipe Search.)  That is the basis for this recipe, with a few tweaks.  I just list Ziti, and the nutrition information is for basic enriched pasta, but you can use whole wheat pasta.  Nutrition information is for 8 servings. 

  1 Lb Ziti, uncooked                                                                 1 1/2 Tsp Oregano
  25 Ounce Spaghetti Sauce                                                      1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder
  15 Ounce Low Fat Ricotta                                                      1/2 Tsp Salt
  8 Ounce Low Fat Mozzarella                                                  1/4 Cup Sun Dried Tomato Pesto
  1 Tbl Parsley                                                                         1/2 Tsp Black Pepper
  1 Large Egg                                                                           1/4 Cup Parmesan

Heat oven to 375F. Cook pasta for 9 minutes; drain.  Return to the pan and cool slightly.  Add 1/2 of the spaghetti sauce, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, parsley, egg, oregano, garlic powder, salt, pesto and pepper.  Mix well - I like to put on a glove an mix by hand.  In and ungreased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish, spoon pasta mixture; top with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese; cover with foil. Bake 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
