Baked Ziti

Tonight I made baked ziti to take to a friend who recently had twins. I have been making this ever since college, it is comfort food to me.

Baked Ziti

1/2 lb ziti, cooked and drained
28 ounce can whole tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1/4 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 lb spicy italian sausage
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/3 cup red wine
1.5 cups shredded mozzerella cheese

Saute onion and sausage in olive oil over medium high heat until sausage is cooked through. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds more. Add tomatoes, wine, brown sugar and tomato paste, stir to break up tomatoes. Add basil and oregano, salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup of the mozzerella cheese and pasta. Pour mixture into a greased 9x9 pan. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top. Cook covered at 350 for 30 minutes, uncover and cook 5 to 10 minutes more, until cheese is brown and bubbly.
