Two family favorites rolled into one, Supreme Pizza Baked Ziti Recipe. This cozy, hearty dish is just the thing to draw your family to the dinner table!
There are days when only a robust pasta dish will do for dinner.
We’ve had a few of those days lately. Whether its a rough day at work or a troublesome test day at school, a cozy pasta dish always makes the cares of the day seem a little less problematic.
Our most recent comforting cure-all pasta dish is a pan of cheesy goodness we call our Supreme Pizza Baked Ziti Recipe.
Actually, it’s a baked penne recipe if we’re being technical. Ziti and penne are so similar, you could use either one. Penne typically has pointed ends while ziti has flat ends. Also penne usually has ridges to hold onto the sauce. I prefer DeLallo Organic Pasta and used their whole wheat penne for this recipe because is has a nice hearty texture and extra nutritional value.
It’s called a Supreme Pizza Baked Ziti Recipe because it contains all the standard components of a supreme pizza: tomato sauce, pepperoni, italian sausage, bell peppers, onion, garlic, and olives.
These ingredients are mixed with a pound of partially cooked DeLallo Organic Whole Wheat Penne Rigate, then poured into a baking dish, covered with cheese, and popped into the oven.
The oven time allows the pasta to finish cooking in the sauce while the cheese oozes down into the pasta.
It’s a beautiful thing.
Note, I also used DeLallo Pomodoro Fresco Sauce (and olives) in this recipe because it’s so fresh and flavorful, it tastes like homemade sauce.
This takes out the unnecessary step of making your own marinara prior to making the Supreme Pizza Bake Ziti Recipe. Less steps, less stress.
I tell myself our Supreme Pizza Baked Ziti Recipe is healthier than serving classic supreme pizza because of the whole wheat pasta, and the fact that we’re using less cheese per serving.
Plus I would choose pasta over pizza any day of the week.
Our family Supreme Pizza Baked Ziti Recipe is a great addition to the weekly menu this fall.
It’s easy to put together, loaded with zesty flavor, and ridiculously inviting.
If your family is anything like mine, this recipe will come in handy on days your dinners need a little extra comfort.
Pasta + Pizza is a sure-fire pick me up!
