Skinny Beast Ziti Parm Makeover

Posted May 24 2010 2:37pm
Today, the Beast needed a claw clippin' (pedicure). While sitting in the lovely massage chair, daydreaming about ziti Parmesan, I glance over to the patron to my right and immediately lose my appetite. She had true Beast Feet...dirty hairy claws being hacked and filed and painted purple...eww.

To wipe that image clean, feast your eyes on this...

ZITI PARM BEAST STYLE1lb whole wheat ziti
1/2lb ground beef, 97%
32oz jar tomato sauce-no salt added (Francesco Rinaldi)
15oz ricotta, fat free
2 cups mozzarella, fat free
1t dried oregano
1t dried basil
1/4cup parmesan
(This recipe makes a ton...a big tray with 16 servings!)

Preheat oven to 350

Brown beef, drain, add sauce and simmer 10 minutes

Meanwhile, cook pasta + drain

Mix ricotta, 1 cup of the mozzarella, and both spices in a bowl

Toss the pasta and meat sauce together

In a 13x9x2 casserole, add half of the pasta mixture

Spread the cheese mixture evenly over the pasta layer

Add remaining pasta mixture

Sprinkle remaining 1 cup of mozzarella and parmesan
