Baked Ziti (with greek yogurt)

As usual, this dish started with something in my fridge that needed to be eaten before it spoiled.

I recently tried greek yogurt. I love that it has more protein than regular yogurt, but it's too sour-cream tasting to eat by itself. I found that if I mix it 50/50 with regular yoplait yogurt, the texture and taste are perfect.

Anyway, I'd been eating yogurt for a while and the kick was nearing its' end. To use up the rest of the container, I made baked ziti. I'd never made baked ziti, and it was delicious.

You need:

Cooked gluten free pasta, drained and still hot
equal amounts greek yogurt and pasta sauce
shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese

Mix the pasta, yogurt, pasta sauce, and cheese and place it in a casserole dish. Sprinkle with more cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted.

Sprinkle with parsley. Easy peasy.
