Test Kitchen Tip
To make sure you’re getting tomatoes in purée, be sure to check the ingredients list. If you can’t find them, substitute one can whole tomatoes in juice and one can crushed tomatoes.
Preheat oven to 400°. Coat a 4-quart casserole dish with nonstick spray.
Sweat onions, garlic, Italian seasoning, and pepper flakes in drippings over medium heat, covered, stirring occasionally, until onions soften, 10 minutes.
For the pasta, cook ziti in a pot of boiling salted water 8 minutes; drain.
Combine sauce, ziti, and provolone; transfer to prepared dish, then sprinkle with Parmesan.
