Million Dollar Baked Ziti

The secret of million dollar anything (Million Dollar Spaghetti, Million Dollar Ravioli, etc) is that it uses cream cheese to make for an extra indulgent, creamy recipe. And that’s just what’s happening here with our Million Dollar Baked Ziti… It has everything wonderful that a traditional baked ziti does, but it also brings an irresistibly creamy layer to the party. And bonus? It’s just as easy to make as the original.

We’re starting with a quick, meaty tomato sauce. Could you use jarred marinara? Sure. But this sauce is very fast and easy, and the flavor is hard to beat. Just brown up some Italian sausage, and then stir in some garlic, oregano, basil, and diced tomatoes, and tomato sauce and let it all simmer for just about ten minutes.

Stir in some sugar and fresh basil and voila, you’ve got a sauce that no jarred version can hope to compete with. What makes this a “million dollar” ziti is that you then take some of that sauce and mix it with cream cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, and a couple of eggs to bind it all together.
