1 lb. ziti noodles (I've also used Gluten Free noodles to make it for my husband.)
12 oz. or more sliced or grated Swiss cheese
1 small can of tomato paste
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Boil the ziti noodles until they are tender, but not overdone.
While the noodles are cooking make the sauce by mixing the tomato paste, tomatoes, water, seasoning, salt and pepper.
In a 9x13 pan, place half of the noodles, half of the Swiss cheese (I like to throw in a little bit of mozzarella cheese too.) , and half of the sauce. Add dash of garlic powder. Repeat the process again. Pour the melted butter on top.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minuets.
|Elijah helping me to grate the Swiss cheese. Swiss cheese is kind of soft and hard to grate so|
I love how he thought outside the box and figured out a new way of grating the cheese so it didn't scrape his fingers.
This is an easy and delicious meal.
My mom made it when I was growing up and i'm making it for my family.
It even pleases the picky eaters in our house.
Goes great with salad and garlic bread.
