Directions:
Cook ziti according to package omitting salt and oil, drain, and set aside. Crumble meat in a large skillet sprayed with nonstick oil and saute until meat is cooked. Add spaghetti sauce. In a separate bowl, combine cheese, egg, parsley, and garlic powder. Mix well, add to ziti, and mix again.

In a 9X13 baking dish, spread 1 cup of the spaghetti sauce/meat mix. Spoon ziti/cheese mix over top, and pour the remaining spaghetti sauce/meat mix on top. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Personal Notes:
I use a whole can of spaghetti sauce with veggies in it. I also use whole wheat pasta. Adding extra pasta to the dish works great if you need to serve a few more people.
