1 Container (15 oz) Ricotta cheese

1 Can (8 oz) Italian-flavored tomato sauce

1/2 c Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

1 Package (8 oz) Mozzarella cheese, shredded, divided



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine cooked sausage, cooked ziti, Ricotta and Parmesan cheeses and half of the shredded Mozzarella; stir to blend.
