Meatless Baked Ziti


  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 (16 ounce) package ziti pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 (8 ounce) package packed fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 (4 ounce) package fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 (15 ounce) container part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) package crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 (8 ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 (14 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 9×13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

Step 2: Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.  Add ziti and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.  Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

Step 3: Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.  Sauté spinach and mushrooms in hot oil until soft, about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and add to ziti.

Step 4: Add ricotta cheese, goat cheese, and 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese to the ziti mixture; combine thoroughly.  Mix in spaghetti sauce and transfer to the prepared baking pan.  Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.

Step 5: Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until bubbly and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.
