1. Preheat the oven to 350*F.
2. Finely chop the mozzarella or process in batches in a food processor.
3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and season with salt to taste. Blanch the ziti for ½ the time stated on the box. Strain and toss in a bowl with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.Over medium heat, combine 1 ½ jars of Carbone Marinara with the grated parmesan cheese until fully blended; about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Once cooled, add the pasta to the sauce mixture; mix evenly.
4. Oil a 12”x10”x2” baking pan. Line the pan with parchment paper, and oil again. Lay half of the pasta mixture into the pan. Follow with half of the mozzarella, spread evenly over the pan. Add the remaining pasta mixture and pack tightly. Finish with the remaining mozzarella. Wrap the pan tightly in foil and bake for 25 minutes. Allow the pan to rest for 15 minutes before removing the foil. Finish quickly under the oven’s broiler to the desired color. Serve with additional heated sauce and garnish with basil.
