I have an extra pack of ZITI PASTA in my shelf after making my BAKED ZITI. With the love I have for pasta, I cannot resist myself cooking them again. I am always pleased with the different recipes I make with my pasta. CHEESY ZITI is a perfect simple family pasta snack and is a fast comfort pasta dish. Cooking Cheesy Ziti requires only about 5 minutes to prepare and 20-30 minutes to be cooked. And for sure, this will only take few minutes to be consumed.
500 grams ziti pasta
1 tbsp. butter
1 onion, peeled and minced
1 cup cooked ham, thinly sliced
3 cups spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cup cheese
dried oregano and basil
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and add ziti. Cook until al dente. Drain, put in a large bowl and set aside.
In a large skillet, melt butter over low heat. Add onion and ham, cook for about 2 minutes. Add spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce, sour cream and cheese, stirring once in a while, cook for 10-12 minutes.
Season with italian seasoning, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, pepper and sugar.
Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
On a separate large skillet, pour half of the sauce, then add half of the cooked pasta ziti, over low heat, tossing constantly. Then add the remaining sauce and pasta. Cook for about 5 minutes until pasta and sauce are well-mixed. Remove from fire.
Then serve your CHEESY ZITI while hot. You may also top them with grated cheddar cheese or parmesan cheese.
