Recipe of the week: Baked ziti with sausage and beef

Each week, Let’s RV will publish one recipe each week from the RV Centennial Cookbook authored by Evada Cooper.

The book features a collection of recipes submitted by RVers themselves. The author is providing the recipes in hopes of encouraging RVers to submit more recipes to be included in a new edition expected to be published soon.

This week’s recipe is for baked zit with Italian sausage and ground beef. It was submitted by Lola Miller, of Fernley, Nev., who has been full-time RVing since 2001 and currently owns a 33-foot fifth wheel. She says they could never completely give up RVing, even after they buy a home because it’s such a great way to travel.


  • 1 jar (32 ounces) spaghetti sauce
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) ricotta cheese
  • 1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Italian sausages
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ziti pasta
  • Parmesan cheese to taste


Brown the beef and sausage (take out of casing), then add the spaghetti sauce. In the meantime, cook your pasta al dente (cooked so as to be still firm when bitten).

After pasta is cooked, drain and mix with ricotta cheese. Spoon sauce in a 9×12 pan (just a bottom layer of sauce), then add a layer of pasta, mozzarella and a little sauce. Repeat until done. Sprinkle the top with mozzarella and parmesan cheese.

Cover and bake in over for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove the cover and bake for 10 more minutes. Let set for 10 minutes, cut in squares and enjoy. May be topped with more sauce. Serve with garlic bread.
