The casserole can be made with or without meat but meat is very much appreciated and provides a protein-rich meal.
1lb any brand ziti
1 - 1.5 lbs chopped meat
Approx. 24 oz of any tomato sauce (Sauce dries into the ziti, you may need two jars.)
Cook ziti according to directions on the package. Brown chopped meat and add to sauce.
Use cooking spray to cover the bottom and sides of the aluminum pan. Place cooked ziti in the aluminum pan. Pour sauce (and meat) over cooked ziti.
Cover tightly with sprayed heavy duty aluminum foil and freeze. Kindly label all trays with the date and mark "with" or "without meat."
