Classic Baked Ziti

This was super quick and easy… And yummy! I omitted the onion, but used minced onion when browning the hamburger. I halved the recipe since there are only two of us. Instead of layering, I mixed all the ziti and meat sauce together… I did add a layer of cheese in between, though! I also used shredded Parmesan instead of grated. My husband and I both loved it!

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 cup onion , chopped
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
