Tackle Cooking Every Night!

That's a hard one for me but I have been doing pretty good as long as I have my meals planned...

Here is the one we had left-overs of tonight.

Baked Turkey & Ziti Casserole

I am not sure where this recipe is from but here it is now :o)...


  • 12 oz. ziti or penne pasta
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • whatever other spices you would like to add (like me)
  • 1 jar marinara sauce
  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Cook pasta according to package, drain & set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet.
  • Add the turkey, onion, bell pepper, and spices... cook until browned.
  • Stir in the pasta, the sauce and the ricotta cheese.
  • Spoon the mixture into a large nonstick baking pan.
  • Top with mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake uncovered for 40-50 minutes.

The ziti casserole looks good! I used to make recipes like that and should again. I didn’t have to cook last night. My friend and I went out to Red Lobster instead. :)
