1. Cook Ziti Pasta according to packaging. I recommend boiling a 1/2 Pound of Pasta in 4 Quarts of Water with 2 Tablespoons Kosher Salt + 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil or 4 Quarts of Chicken Broth and boil until Al-Dente (about 8-10 minutes). Once done boiling, set aside.
2. In a dutch oven or large cooking pot. Add in olive oil, then add in diced onion and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add in minced garlic and cook for another minute.
3. Turn heat up to medium-high and add in minced ground beef, season with salt and black pepper, and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until beef is fully cooked.
4. Add in pasta sauce and bring to a simmer for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and mix in parmigiano reggiano cheese. Add in cooked pasta and mix in well. Remove from heat and let mixture rest for about 5 minutes for pasta and sauce to adhere.
5. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
6. In a large cooking pan, add half of the pasta. Add 8 ounces of ricotta cheese and evenly spread across the top, layer on top with ½ cup of parmigiano reggiano, then add 8 ounces of Mozzarella. Repeat steps by adding the remainder of pasta, then top with remainder of ricotta cheese, parmigiano reggiano, and mozzarella.
7. Bake for 30-35 minutes uncovered or until cheese browns and bubbles.
