I received this recipe from Carol. Thanks Carol! It sounds DELICIOUS!!!
-------------------------------------------------------------
I have an easy recipe that I discovered mainly because I had all of the ingredients! I spice it up a little by adding italian seasonings and a little bit of red pepper but it is good just as it is below.

This recipe makes alot! Think large lasagna dish to hold all of it As a family of 4, we usually eat about half and I freeze half for later meals.

Baked Ziti

1 pound dry ziti pasta
1 onion, chopped
1 pound lean ground beef
2 (26 ounce) jars spaghetti sauce
6 ounces provolone cheese, sliced
1 1/2 cups sour cream
6 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add ziti pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes; drain.
In a large skillet, brown onion and ground beef over medium heat. Add spaghetti sauce, and simmer 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Layer as follows: 1/2 of the ziti, Provolone cheese, sour cream, 1/2 sauce mixture, remaining ziti, mozzarella cheese and remaining sauce mixture. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheeses are melted
