Baked Ziti

  Baked Ziti

1 16 ounce pkg of ziti pasta
1 lb of ground beef (optional)
1 chopped onion
2 28 ounce jars of spaghetti sauce
6oz sliced provolone cheese
6 oz sliced mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

Cook ziti per box directions.
Brown beef  in large skillet, add onions: saute until tender.  Drain fat and add spaghetti sauce; simmer.
In 9x13 casserole, place 1/2 of ziti ; top with a layer of provolone and mozzarella cheese slices.  Spread half of the spaghetti sauce mixture and all of sour cream.
Cover with remaining pasta, cheese and sauce; sprinkle with layer of Parmesan cheese and fresh basil.

Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees F or until dish is bubbly.

Review:  Easy and tasty.  I did not use the ground beef but it would be good either way.  I did not have fresh basil but mixed dried Italian herbs into the spaghetti sauce and this added some extra flavor.  Still looking for the BEST, easy baked ziti recipe.  This was very good but nothing special.
