Vegetarian Baked Ziti

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!!

I’ve made Baked Ziti many times before……but always with meat. So I figured, making a meatless one should be easier…..right.

All I know is I did not want this dish to be overly complicated and fussy. Easy breezy and delicious is what I have in mind.

Let’s jump into this recipe……….

Ingredients:

1 lbs of Whole Grain Penne Pasta
2 C fresh organic spinach
1 C diced organic onion ( I used 1/2 C of yellow and green onion)
1/2 C diced organic peppers ( I used organic frozen green, red & yellow peppers)
3 C mozzarella cheese ( I prefer rbstย free or organic)
(1) 24oz. jar of organic marinara (I prefer Bertolli)

Seasoning/Spices:

1/2 tsp Salt (Pink Himalayan)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil

Method:

1. Cook your pasta according to package directions.

2. In a large greased baking dish add pasta, spinach, onions, peppers, 2 C cheese and spices.

3. Toss everything to get it evenly distributed.

4. Pour your marinara sauce across the top, using a spatula to evenly spread.

5. Place in a 350 pre-heated oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

6. Remove from the oven and toss to get the sauce evenly distributed. Top with 1 C cheese and place back into the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Once done, let it cool a bit and serve.

    • Great!!! I’m trying to slowly incorporate vegetarians meals a couple times a week. I started with this one, since it was such a hit I have to try more. Thanks so much for stopping by!!! โ˜บ

  1. This recipe sounds delicious. I have to take iron pills because my iron levels are so low (and I’m not vegetarian) so I’m always trying to eat more spinach. I’m making this. Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • My oldest daughter had low iron as well and had to take iron pills. So, I am always trying to sneak in spinach and thing’s so I can keep her levels up. I learned that cooking in a cast-iron skillet gives off natural iron every time you cook in it, which has been very helpful. Thanks so much for coming by!! ๐Ÿ˜€
