Baked Ziti with Sausage and Artichokes

(1 Votes)
1 Hr 20 Min

It's fancy enough for company, yet simple enough to be a potluck favorite any night of the week.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound uncooked ziti
  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 2 cans (14 ounces each) quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1 jar (25 to 28 ounces) spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups (1 pound) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.

  2. Cook the pasta according to the package directions; drain and set aside in a large bowl.

  3. In a large skillet, sauté the sausage over medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes, breaking it up as it cooks. Drain the liquid from the cooked sausage and add it to the ziti along with the artichoke hearts, spaghetti sauce, crushed tomatoes, garlic powder, pepper, and 3 cups of the mozzarella cheese; mix well.

  4. Pour into a 9" x 13" baking dish that has been coated with nonstick vegetable spray and sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese over the top.

  5. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until heated through.


You can buy canned artichokes already quartered, or buy whole canned ones and cut them yourself.

I don't either; can't imagine that they add either texture or taste. I'm going to use this recipe, but I'll be reaching for onions, garlic, oregano, and maybe a little red pepper.

i do not like the idea of adding artichoke hearts to this , i would omit them and add onions and garlic instead, thanks

also try fresh saute mushrooms
