Baked Ziti with Shrimp

A lady I worked with brought this in one day, and it was a hit. Now it is the favorite of all my dinner guests. It’s great for a covered dish dinner too. I have made this also without the meat, and it is well received.

This baked ziti dish features scallops, shrimp, and a silky sauce made from jarred roasted bell peppers and pureed cream cheese.

This recipe was easy and good, and as other reviewers have said it is very similar to lasagna. I would make one change next time I make it and put the bottom layer of sauce dirctly on the noodles, then the cheese on top of that. When assembled as directed, the provolone cheese layer made a barrier and kept the sauce away from the noodles below and made for a layer of naked noodles at the bottom. I also ended up with extra sauce while assembling because it didn’t settle down to the bottom. This recipe makes a VERY full 9X13 pan, and definitely use a well seasoned sauce (like tomato & basil) and the half & half ground beef and italian sausage. My 3 year old really like it too! Thank you!

This was delicious, the only thing I changed was the addition of salt and pepper and 2 cloves minced garlic. Side note: I’ve noticed many of the reviews who rated this recipe low had modified the ingredients, in particular using ricotta cheese instead of sour cream. I thought the sour cream added a wonderful flavor and feel there is already plenty of cheese flavor and no need for ricotta. Reviewers need to remember that when modifying or customizing ingredients of recipes to their own liking or opinion it is inappropriate to leave a poor or low review or rating.

The reason why I love this site, is to be able to try new recipes. If you are going to suggest making a completely different recipe in a REVIEWRATE, then submit your own recipe. It’s not fair to the other person to have their version shot down completely. **I made this and took it to a family reunion this past summer….it was a big hit! Try it, you will be pleasantly surprised!**
Simply delicious! This is very easy to throw together and perfect for a hearty weeknight meal. So if your’re in the mood for Italian but think you don’t have the time – think again. I added 1/2 lb. of sausage to the ground beef and onion along with some fresh minced garlic. And, to the sauce I added a little red wine and some Italian seasoning to give a bit of a flavor boost. The sour cream was a nice change from the usual ricotta cheese and I just eyeballed the other cheeses when layering. I covered it and baked it a little longer than 30 minutes leaving it uncovered for the last 10 minutes. Great with garlic bread and a salad!
