Total Time30 mins
- 1 pound ground beef
- 2 cups tomato sauce
- 2 cups water
- 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 1/2 cups ziti noodles
- 1/2 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
- 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley as garnish optional
Brown the ground beef in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Drain away any excess drippings.
Stir in tomato sauce, water, Italian Seasoning Blend, and cayenne pepper and bring to boil. Stir in the uncooked ziti noodles, cover, and reduce the heat to low setting. Simmer until the ziti is tender, about 20 minutes.
Remove from the heat and remove the cover from the skillet. Stir in the sour cream and half of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle with the remaining cheeses and recover. Allow to rest until the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.
