Cheesy Baked Ziti

One of my best friends moved back into her house after a 2-year recovery from Hurricane Ike. We celebrated this weekend with cooking in her new kitchen.


1 pound ground beef
1/2 onion chopped fine
Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
1 pound ziti
2 jars pasta sauce (I used fire roasted tomato and garlic)
8 ounces mozzarella cheese grated
8 ounces parmesan, asiago, romano mixed grated cheese
8 ounces non-smoked provolone cheese (save for the top)
fresh parsley chopped

Boil ziti according to package instructions. Drain. Saute ground beef with onion until done. Drain. Add pasta sauce. Layer sauce, ziti, cheeses, and parsley. Bake at 375 degrees until brown and bubbly (about 20-25 minutes).
