Veggie Baked Ziti

My sister-in-law served this dish to us a while ago and I finally got a hold of the recipe, we've made it twice already this month. A great way to get the kiddos eating veggies, tastes great, and so easy. You can add any vegetables but I really like it like this:

Veggie Baked Ziti
  • 1 lb ziti, cooked
  • 2 medium zucchini, can substitute or add 1 yellow squash
  • 3 c. chopped spinach, or more
  • 1 small onion
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 16 oz cottage cheese
  • 3 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 jar marinara sauce
  • Basil, 1 tsp dried, 1/2 c. fresh, chopped
  • Salt and Pepper taste
  • Olive oil
Cooking Directions:
Saute onion and garlic in 1 tsp olive oil. Add zucchini. Cook until tender. Add spinach and cook another minute. Add marinara sauce, cottage cheese, ziti, basil, salt and pepper, and half the mozzarella. Stir and pour into a 9 x 13 dish. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella on top. Bake at 425 for 10 min or until cheese is melted.
