1 pound ziti pasta, cooked al dente according to package instructions drained
4 links (about 1 pound) cooked Italian sausage, sliced 1/2-inch thick
1 32-ounce jar marinara sauce
1 15-ounce container whole milk ricotta cheese
8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup each fresh basil and parsley leaves chopped
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a 9×13 inch pan.
In a large bowl, stir together the cooked ziti, sausage, and all but 1 cup of marinara sauce. Spread half of the ziti mixture in the bottom of your prepared pan.
Spoon half of the ricotta and mozzarella evenly over the top. Top with the rest of the ziti mixture, then remaining ricotta, mozzarella, and reserved marinara sauce.
Bake 20-25 minutes, until the sauce is bubbling and cheese is melted. Sprinkle the basil and parsley over the ziti and serve warm.
