Four Cheese Baked Ziti


This recipe came in an advertisement for a Taste of Home Cookbook. I kept looking at the recipe and wanting to make it. After Mom broke her foot, I decided it would be good for our Thursday night dinner. I made breaded baked chicken, 1/2 of the ziti, salad, garlic bread and the cherry pie previously posted. Dinner came out delicious if I do say so myself! My mom was glad to not have to cook...but she would not stay out of the kitchen!

I forgot to take a picture of it until after we served, so here's the whole dinner. It was so good!

Ingredients:

1 package (16 oz) ziti or small tube pasta
2 cartons (10 oz each) refrigerated Alfredo sauce
1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 carton (15 oz) ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1 3/4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions:

1. Cook pasta; drain and return to the pan. Stir in Alfredo sauce and sour cream. Spoon half into a lightly greased 3 qt. baking dish.

2. Combine eggs, ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, Romano cheese and parsley; spread over pasta. Top with remaining pasta mixture; sprinkle with mozzarella and remaining Parmesan.

3. Cover, bake at 350 degrees, 25 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160 degrees. Uncover; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until bubbly.

That looks delicious. And it looks pretty simple. When did your poor mom break her foot?
