No-Boil Crockpot Ziti

 2 (@25 oz.) jars/cans pasta sauce (or @ 3 cups homemade)

1 jar water (see below)

15 oz container of ricotta cheese

1 egg, beaten

1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

3 cups shredded mozzarella

16 oz box of ziti

Optional:  Italian seasoning, oregano, garlic powder, red pepper flakes

In the Crockpot, mix the pasta sauce, one jar of water*, ricotta, egg, parmesan and 2 cups of the mozzarella.  Then stir in the uncooked ziti.  If you like some more “zip” to your sauce, toss in a few of your favorite seasonings as suggested above.  Cook on low 4-5 hours.  Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.  Place under broiler just until bubbling and starting to brown.

*I like to fill one of the empty sauce jars with water, shake it well to get the “extra bits”, pour that water into the second jar and shake that one too, then add the water to the crockpot.  No wasted sauce that way!
