Another New Recipe

      I tried another new recipe yesterday.  I think it may become my favorite Italian dish.  I loved the melding of flavors!  It is called Baked Ziti.   The recipe called for ziti pasta but I only had mostaccioli which is very similar.  I'm sure any kind of pasta would work.  As always I am posting it on the Recipes' page (#1) also.

Baked Ziti
1 lb ziti pasta
1 lb ground beef
1 onion
1-2 cloves garlic (or garlic powder)
1/2 t. caraway (or fennel) seed
2 26 oz. jars spaghetti sauce
8 oz. Provolone cheese, sliced
1 1/2 c. sour cream
8 oz. grated mozzarella cheese
1/4 c. or more Parmesan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare pasta according to directions on package.  Brown hamburger, onion, garlic & caraway seed till done--about 15 minutes and add spaghetti sauce.

Spray large 9x13 pan- this recipe makes a lot-- (or 2 8x8 pans and freeze one) with cooking spray.  Layer 1/2 pasta, 1/2 sauce, slices of Provolone, sour cream, rest of pasta, rest of sauce, mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with Parmesan.  Cover with aluminum foil and bake 30 minutes.  Remove foil to brown top.
