Baked Ziti

16 oz. of ziti pasta
1 lb. of mild italian sausage
15 oz. ricotta cheese
1 egg
1 large sweet onion
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. organo
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
37 oz. tomato basil pasta sauce
8 oz. Italian cheese blend
1 tsp. dried basil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to boil, add ziti pasta and cook for 8 minutes. While pasta cooks, in a large skillet cook sausage until brown, about 10 minutes. Drain sausage and set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, egg, onion and oregano until well combined. In a seperate medium bowl, combine sausage, pepper, salt, and pasta sauce. In a greased 9x13 pan cover the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of sauce mixture. Layer on 1/2 of the pasta in the pan, then 1/3 of the pasta sauce, followed by 1/2 of the cheese. Layer the remaining pasta, sauce and cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes
