National Marathon Baked Ziti

16 oz. ziti pasta

1lb 10 oz. bottle spaghetti sauce

6 oz. sliced provolone (or enough to cover 9x13)

6 oz. mozzarella cheese

1 ½ -2 cups sour cream

1 pd. Ground beef

1 onion, chopped

Grated Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. Brown ground beef and onion. Add spaghetti sauce. Layer as follows in a greased 9x13 pan. Half of the ziti, provolone cheese, sour cream, half of the sauce mixture, remaining ziti, mozzarella cheese, and remaining sauce mixture. Top with Parmesan cheese and bake at 350 for 30 min. or until cheese is melted.

This was made by a Marathon mommy(Kristi) for a Marathon Daddy on Friday night and is still a great carbo load dinner.
My husband ran the National Marathon in Washington D.C. on Saturday and I was insanely jealous it was not me, but was still so proud! (photo of him collapsing in my arms)

Congratulations to both of you! Kristi for being such a great Mom and wife to support your Husband as he ran...Thanks for the recipe. It's always good to have something besides the "basic" carbo loading recipes!

Oh that photo is amazing Kristi! You two are a power couple to be reckoned with.

The recipe looks great and I will for sure try it out!

Thanks for this recipe! You are such a good, supportive wife. My son was just asking yesterday if there were any Marathon Daddies. I will proudly tell him yes! How did Jeff do in the race?

Thanks for a great recipe. I can't wait to try something other than my basic, boring spaghetti. I'm sure my kids and husband will appreciate something different (and yummy)!

That picture is so sweet. I know those emotions at the end of a marathon - and there is nothing like sharing it with the person who helped you the most to cross that finish line. Is he going to be there when you cross the finish line in Salt Lake?

What a wonderful photo. It captures real emotion. I love that.

How did he do???

Thanks for the recipe. You're awesome.

Miraculously I had (most of) the ingredients in the house, so I made your recipe for dinner last night. The whole family loved it! And it made so much, we're going to have it again tonight... unless I eat all of it for lunch in a few minutes...
