For the quick version of Baked Ziti all you do is boil up some pasta. Pour some jarred sauce over it and sprinkle some pre-shredded mozzarella cheese and a little grated Parmesan cheese on top... pop it under the broiler for 2 minutes and you got dinner on the table. 

You can make a large tray or a single plate of quick baked ziti... it is a great pantry meal.
