Numerous things to like about this one pot supper! Due to the fact that this baked ziti cooks with the sauce, you truthfully can’t inform the pasta is entire wheat. Naturally, when it pertains to entire wheat pasta, you all understand the only brand name I like is Delallo. The texture is a lot better than other brand names, it’s the very first brand name that got me to transform and I like that it’s natural. They have a range of shapes in entire wheat, however I truly like their entire wheat cavatappi for this dish. To keep the calories low I recommend making your own homemade marinara with their San Marzano imported tomatoes or one that doesn’t have a great deal of oil included.

There’s no meat in this meal, so for the protein (over 23 grams per serving) this meal has 3 cheeses – mozzarella, ricotta and Pecorino Romano cheese. If you wish to include meat, utilize a meat sauce rather or include some remaining sliced up meatballs. The pasta cooks together in the Immediate Pot (affil link) with the sauce at the very same time all in one pot! All you Italians out there are shaking your head, I understand! You’re expected to boil pasta in a big pot of water, however think what, I fed this to my Italian partner and he returned for seconds. Kids like it too!
