5 Ingredient Cheesy Baked Ziti which is - no joke - the BEST pasta dish I have ever made! To quote my brother “I wish I could pay you to make this again.” It’s loaded with divine flavour since it's only 5 ingredients, is great for weeknights and holidays!

Cook pasta according to package directions in a pot of salted water. Drain the pasta.
Lightly grease a 13” x 9” pan, and set aside.
In a pan over medium heat, add both jars of Rao's Homemade Marinara Sauce. Heat over medium for about 3-5 minutes until heated through. Add in the drained pasta and the vegan meat alternative crumbles and stir to combine.
Add half of the pasta and sauce mix to your 13” x 9” pan, spreading evenly across the bottom. Spoon over half of the ricotta, gently stirring into so there’s still somewhat of a layer on top, and half mixed in. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese on top. Add the other half of the pasta, dollop the ricotta on, mixing in slightly, and sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella cheese on top.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes so everything comes together beautifully and the cheese melts. Top with basil and serve and enjoy!
