One Pot Baked Ziti

Lynn demonstrates how to make a delicious One Pot Baked Ziti.   Serve with a green salad and garlic bread for a delicious dinner.  I am using a Pampered Chef Everyday Rockcrok that was a gift from my friend and subscriber, Kristy.  You can also do this in other types of cookware.  Adapted from


  • 1 pound Italian Sausage, casings removed
  • 1 Tablespoon dried minced onion flakes
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups water
  • 12 ounces ziti pasta
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Brown Italian sausage in a 9” oven safe pan until browned.  Drain fat.

Add onion flakes and garlic.  Cook for 30-60 seconds, until fragrant.  Stir in tomatoes, salt, red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning.

Add water and ziti.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and cover pan.  Simmer for 15-20 minutes, until pasta is tender.

Remove skillet from heat.  Stir in ricotta and heavy cream.  Cook on low for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Top with mozzarella cheese.  Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly.
