How To Make Baked Ziti with Spinach
It takes only 10 minutes to prep this creamy baked ziti. It’s cooked with oregano-seasoned tomato sauce and topped with melty mozzarella cheese.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking pan with oil spray.
In a large pot of salted water, cook pasta according to instructions until al dente (It is recommended to under-cook it for 3 or 4 minutes as it will cook more in the oven). Drain and return to pot.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, add olive oil and sauté garlic. Add chopped spinach, salt, pepper, and crushed tomatoes. Season with basil, oregano, salt, and pepper and cook for 5 minutes.
Add sauce to the pasta and combine. Add half of the mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, and ricotta. Mix well then transfer to the baking pan.
Pour the pasta mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Top with the remaining mozzarella and cover with foil.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until mozzarella is melted and the edges are lightly browned. Let it cool 5 minutes before serving.
