Cheesy Italian Meatball Casserole

I made this for dinner tonight!  It was fairly easy and very good!

Cheesy Italian Meatball Casserole

16 ounces dried ziti or penne pasta
1 26-ounce tomato-base pasta sauce
1 16-ounce package frozen Italian-style cooked meatballs, thawed
1 15-ounce can italian-style tomato sauce
1 15-ounce carton ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grate parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook pasta according to package; drain. Return to pan. Stir in pasta sauce, meatballs and tomato sauce. Transfer to an ungreased 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Bake, covered, for 30 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese and parmesan cheese. Uncover pasta mixture and spoon ricotta mixture in mounds over pasta mixture. Cover loosely; bake about 10 minutes more or until heated through. Top with mozzarella cheese and back, uncovered, for 5 more minutes. Make 5 to 8 servings.
