Stovetop Ziti

Posted on: July 14, 2010

This meal is quick and easy and tastes a lot like baked ziti without actually baking it. Everything comes together on the stovetop to make for an easy weeknight meal. The sour cream is the magical ingredient here, bringing together the sauce and the cheese, making for a creamy pasta dish.

1 box mezze penne or ziti pasta
1 pound italian sausage, ground or removed from casing
1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded or cubed
1/2 cup sour cream

Add pasta to a boiling pot of water. In a large skillet, cook sausage (breaking it into pieces if using links) until no longer pink. Drain, if needed. Turn heat to low.

Drain pasta and add to the skillet. Stir in pasta sauce and seasonings. Mix in cheese and remove skillet from heat once cheese has melted. Stir in sour cream.
