  • 1 lb. uncooked ziti
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves - minced
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese - shredded



Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain & set aside.

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat; add garlic & saute 2 minutes. Add turkey & cook until browned, breaking up meat with a spoon as it cooks, about 3 - 5 minutes. Drain off any fat & set pan back over medium heat. (Probably will not be any fat to drain.)

Add oregano, thyme, salt & pepper; stir to coat turkey. Cook until herbs become fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes & bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat & simmer for 5 minutes.

Spoon a small amount of turkey mixture into bottom of a 4 quart casserole dish (just enough to cover the surface); top with half of the ziti. Repeat layers & then top with cheese. Bake until cheese is bubbly, about 30 minutes.

Beef can be subbed for the turkey.
