America's Test Kitchen Skillet Baked Ziti


*** Recipes Tutorials ***



Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cups water
  • 12 ounces ziti pasta (3¾ cups)
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaf, minced
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • I haven't made this yet, but lots of reviews making additions (browned hamburger, italian sausage, etc...). Looks VERY versatile.

Directions
  • 1  Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 475.
  • 2  Combine oil, garlic, pepper flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in 12-inch ovensafe nonstick skillet and saute over medium-high heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. (If your skillet is not ovensafe, transfer the pasta mixture into a shallow 2-quart casserole dish before sprinkling with the cheese and baking).
  • 3  Add crushed tomatoes, water, ziti and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • 4  Cover and cook, stirring often and adjusting heat as needed to maintain vigorous simmer, until ziti is almost tender, 15-18 minutes.
  • 5  Stir in cream, Parmesan, and basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 6  Sprinkle mozzarella evenly over ziti. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until cheese has melted and browned, about 10 minutes. Serve.
