Better-For-You Three Cheese Baked Ziti
I left out the Italian turkey sausage but the original recipe also calls for 4 oz. of it. I am just not a fan. So this easily became a meatless main dish. If you would like to add it the recipe calls for it to be browned along with the onions.
I actually really enjoyed this casserole. Not only is it quick to prepare, it made very little dishes to wash. I boiled my pasta, sauteed my onions, garlic, and zucchini, and combined all the rest of the ingredients in the same pot. Like I mentioned before I left out the turkey sausage and it tasted wonderful with just veggies in it. The low-fat ricotta made the sauce very creamy. I will definitely make again and I may add a few other veggies like whole tomatoes and mushrooms.
