Baked Ziti



12 oz uncooked ziti
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1/2 pound lean ground turkey
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
28 oz canned crushed tomatoes
1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cook pasta according to package directions without added fat or salt; drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium heat; add garlic and sauté 2 minutes. Add turkey and cook until browned, breaking up the meat as it cooks, about 3 to 5 minutes; drain off any fat and return pan to heat.
Add oregano, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper; stir to coat turkey. Cook until herbs become fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Spoon a small amount of tomato mixture into the bottom of a 4-quart casserole dish (just enough to cover the surface). Top with half of the cooked ziti and then layer with half of the remaining tomato sauce and half of the mozzarella cheese. Layer remaining ziti on top and top with remaining sauce and mozzarella cheese. Bake until cheese is golden and bubbly, about 30 minutes. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
Serves 8 at 6 points each.
