Slow Cooker Baked Ziti

Serves: 6

Cook Time: 4 Hours 10 Minutes



1 (16-ounce) package ziti, uncooked

1 pound bulk Italian sausage

1 onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 (15-ounce) container ricotta cheese

2 eggs

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, divided

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

2 (24-ounce) jars spaghetti sauce

Chopped fresh parsley for sprinkling



Coat a 5-quart or larger slow cooker with cooking spray. Rinse uncooked pasta, drain, and set aside.


In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook sausage, onion, and garlic 6 to 8 minutes or until browned; drain and set aside.


In a medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, eggs, 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and oregano; mix well.


In the slow cooker, layer 2 cups sauce on the bottom, top with half the sausage mixture, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, half the ziti, and half the ricotta mixture. Repeat layers one more time. Top with remaining sauce and remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese on top.


Cover and cook on low 4 to 5 hours, or until pasta is tender. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
