Buffalo Baked Ziti

Today (March 3rd) is the feast of St. Katharine Drexel.  The following recipe for Buffalo Baked Ziti was submitted by Veronica Gantley, from My Catholic Kitchen.  She says, "St . Katharine Drexel founded the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament for Indians and Colored People, so I thought it would be fitting to use buffalo for her feast day."  Thank you Veronica!

Buffalo (Bison) Baked Ziti

1 pound dry ziti or penne pasta
1 small onion, chopped
1 pound ground buffalo meat (Bison)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 package of Italian cheese blend


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add ziti or penne pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes; drain.

In a large skillet, brown onion and ground bison over medium heat. Add spaghetti sauce, and simmer 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Combine the sauce and the pasta in the baking dish and top with the package of Italian cheese blend.

Saint Katharine Drexel, pray for us!
