Meanwhile, cook the ziti until al dente. Drain well and toss it with the ricotta mixture until well coated. Add the sausage and sauce and mix again. Add the mozzarella and toss gently. Pour everything into the baking dish and sprinkle the remaining pecorino on top. Bake uncovered until lightly browned and bubbling, about 20 minutes. Serve right away.
This is my go-to recipe for comfort food. I have been making it for years. It's easy and so tasty. To the sauce, I now add bulgur (1/3c) and a bunch of kale chopped up. I usually use extra lean ground beef instead of sausage. I also use whole wheat penne, and low fat ricotta. I usually add extra chili flakes because we like the spice. I haven't tried making it with soy based 'ground beef' but, I bet it would still be great.
Easy and really good!
