Baked Ziti

1 lb. ziti pasta
1 onion, chopped
1 lb. lean ground beef OR Italian sausage
2 26oz. jars spaghetti sauce (I prefer Prego Meat Sauce, it tends to be thicker)
6 slices Provolone cheese
1 1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups Mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese, to cover
1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef OR Italian sausage with onion. Drain fat. Add spaghetti sauce to skillet and simmer for 15 minutes.
2. While meat mixture is simmering, boil noodles until al dente. Drain.
3. Layer as follows in a 9x13 pan:
1/2 ziti noodles, Provolone cheese, sour cream, 1/2 meat sauce mixture, remaining ziti noodles, Mozzarella cheese, remaining meat sauce mixture, and cover with Parmesan cheese.
4. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Spinach Parmesan Garlic Toast-
I highly recommend trying this! I bought a loaf of Spinach Parmesan bread from Alpine Bread Co. and added my garlic butter spread (recipe in Garlic Chicken Alfredo post) and cooked it under the broiler for a few minutes- Yummo!
