void in our very souls? I don't know. It was also pretty forgettable.
No Country for Old Men.
Let me just say, that movie freaked me out. I've never seen Javier Bardem play a bad guy, but damn. He gave me nightmares. And I will forever be terrified of those old people who carry around oxygen tanks. *shudder*
maybe you could.
Desserty overkill? Maybe, but if that's wrong I don't want to be thin.
And by request, here is the recipe Diane used for the baked ziti. From allrecipes.com with the following note from Diane: "I use ricotta instead of cottage cheese and to the sauce I also add basil, oregano, thyme, red wine, salt and pepper to taste. That's it. It's pretty simple."
- 1 pound dry ziti pasta
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1/2 pound ground pork sausage
- 1 1/2 (26 ounce) jars spaghetti sauce
- salt to taste
- 1 (6 ounce) package provolone cheese, sliced
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 3/4 cup cottage cheese
- 1 (6 ounce) package mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.
- Meanwhile, heat olive oil in large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Cook onion in oil until tender. Stir in rosemary and garlic. Transfer to a small bowl.
- Place ground beef and sausage in the skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Stir in the onion mixture and the spaghetti sauce. Season with salt. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. In the prepared dish, layer 1/2 of the cooked pasta, provolone cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, and a little less than 1/2 of the meat mixture. Then layer the rest of the pasta, mozzarella cheese, remaining meat mixture, and Parmesan cheese.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until heated through and cheeses are melted.
