yum, yum, extra yum.

I was flipping through a magazine and got inspired to cook. Believe me, that doesn't happen often.
until you try this.


Stovetop Ziti

Recipe from Woman's Day


1 lb ziti (see FYI)

1 bag (12 oz) fresh broccoli florets (6 cups)


    1 jar (26 oz) marinara sauce

    1 cup part-skim ricotta

    4 oz part-skim mozzarella, diced

    1⁄3 cup chopped fresh parsley

    1/4 cup Parmesan


1. Cook ziti as package directs, adding broccoli to the pot 4 minutes before pasta is finished.

2. Sauce: Mix marinara sauce and 1⁄2 cup ricotta in a medium saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until hot.

3. Drain pasta and broccoli. Return to pot. Add sauce mixture; toss to mix and coat. Immediately add mozzarella and about half the parsley and Parmesan. Stir until mozzarella melts.

4. Transfer to serving bowl; sprinkle with remaining parsley and Parmesan. Top with spoonfuls of remaining ricotta before serving.

Happy eating, friends! xo! :)
