Meanwhile, cook the Ziti according to package directions. Drain and stir into the sauce, then spread into a 9 x 13" metal baking dish. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese. Broil until the cheese is golden brown, 3-5 mins (at 5 mins, the cheese was just a tad over brown)

NOTES : Karen made on 02/07/03. Used Rigatoni instead. Easy to make. Adding some sauteed mushrooms or spicy turkey sausage would be good. Could probably cut this recipe into 8 servings to keep the points lower if adding meat. Good left overs. Will try freezing.
Jane: Would be 5 pts per serving if cut into 8 pieces (w/o any additions).
