Old Faithful

This feeds many people and is extremely easy (but can be customized). I have brought this to several dozen potlucks over the course of the past few years. It's actually sort of embarrassing how easy this is, but like I said, it's yummy and it feeds a crowd.

Baked Ziti
1 bottle of pasta sauce
1 box of ziti
1 carton of ricotta cheese (the larger size)

Cook and drain the ziti. Put the ziti, the pasta sauce, and the cheese in a large pan and mix them well. Cook at 350 for about 30 minutes. Voila.

Possible modifications/additions:
parmesan (or other grated) cheese sprinkled on top
add veggies to the store-bought pasta sauce (mushrooms, zucchini, carrots, etc.)
make your own sauce with cans of crushed tomatoes and onions, garlic, and other veggies

A cool variation on this is the "mushroom-sauce pasta"

Scaled to however much you want:

assorted pastas, cooked.
can(s) of cream of mushroom soup, prepared as per the instructions on the can, but with only half as much water (milk?) as called for.
sliced sauteed mushrooms, in any quantity.

Mix together!
