sausage baked ziti


So I realize it’s been a few weeks since I whipped up something new, but here I am again! Classes are in full swing and I’m honestly still trying to get used to my schedule.

However, I kind of just put some stuff together in hopes that it would taste good, and I think it worked!

It’s almost similar to my zucchini enchilada casserole, but it’s a little less healthy (good for the soul though!). So here’s a sausage baked ziti! (I was pretty excited about this)

What you’ll need:

  • Sausage (can be plain or with jalepeno)
  • Ziti pasta
  • Corn
  • Salsa verde (I used a hatch chile salsa verde that they had at my HEB but regular will work too)
  • Cheese

What to do:

  • First, you’ll need to bring a pot of water to boil for the ziti.
  • After putting the ziti into the boiling pot, lower the heat to about medium and stir, making sure the pasta doesn’t stick to the pot.
  • It should only really take 10 minutes for the pasta to be done. Once it is done, drain it out and set it aside.
  • Now you can use the same pot or get a new one, it doesn’t matter. But cut up your sausage into smaller pieces and put into the pot to sauté.
  • Turn off the heat after a few minutes, you don’t want to overdo the sausage.
  • Next, preheat the oven on to about 350 degrees.
  • In a big bowl, add the pasta, corn, and sausage to mix around. Add the salsa verde and mix that as well.
  • In a casserole dish, add the pasta mixture. Sprinkle a small amount of cheese on top to melt in the oven.
  • Put it in the oven for about 10-15 minutes (I put mine in for 25 minutes and it ended up a little crispy on top).
  • Once your timer goes off, take the dish out of the oven, let it cool, and enjoy!

This is great for meal prep too! In all honesty, like I said before, I just kind of put it together. However, this meal was less than $15 and I’m definitely a fan.

Alright, well I will try to be back sooner to cook more for y’all! Have a great rest of your week!
