Healthier Baked Ziti



Ingredients :

  • 1 pound ziti pasta
  • 1 bunch fresh spinach
  • or more to taste
  • ¾ cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 pound Italian turkey sausage
  • 1 onion
  • chopped
  • 2 carrots
  • chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • minced
  • 2 (26 ounce) jars spaghetti sauce
  • 1 head broccoli
  • cut into florets
  • 6 ounces smoked fresh mozzarella cheese
  • diced
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Methods :

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook ziti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain and transfer pasta to a bowl and toss with spinach and sour cream.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir sausage, onion, carrots, and garlic until onion is translucent and sausage is no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Add spaghetti sauce and broccoli to sausage mixture and simmer until sauce mixture is heated through, about 15 minutes.
  • Layer 1/2 of the ziti mixture into a 9×13-inch baking dish. Spread 1/2 of the fresh mozzarella cheese, 1/2 of the sauce mixture, the remaining ziti mixture, and fresh mozzarella cheese, respectively, into the baking dish. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the dish. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheeses have melted, about 20 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil and cook until top is lightly browned, about 10 minutes more.
