  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cups water
  • 12 ounces ziti pasta (3 3/4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaf, minced
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded



Step 1

Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 475. 2 Combine oil, garlic, pepper flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in 12-inch ovensafe nonstick skillet and saute over medium-high heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. (If your skillet is not ovensafe, transfer the pasta mixture into a shallow 2-quart casserole dish before sprinkling with the cheese and baking). 3 Add crushed tomatoes, water, ziti and 1/2 teaspoon salt. 4 Cover and cook, stirring often and adjusting heat as needed to maintain vigorous simmer, until ziti is almost tender, 15-18 minutes. 5 Stir in cream, Parmesan, and basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 6 Sprinkle mozzarella evenly over ziti. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until cheese has melted and browned, about 10 minutes. Serve.
