2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 lbs. ground sausage
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. dried oregano
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of ground cloves
Pinch of salt and pepper
3 cups jarred marinara sauce
1 lb. ziti
3 cups ricotta
4 large egg yolks
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 cup fresh finely shredded Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the sausage, onion, oregano, cinnamon, cloves and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook over high heat, stirring frequently, until the sausage is no longer pink. Add the marinara sauce and bring to a boil. Boil over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has reduced.
2. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and return to the pot. Meanwhile, process 2 cups of the ricotta with the egg yolks in a food processor, add the nutmeg and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Pulse in the remaining ricotta.
3. Add the sausage mixture to the pasta and toss well. Transfer the pasta to a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Pour the ricotta mixture on top and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan. Bake in the center of the oven for about 25 minutes, until heated through. Turn the broiler on and broil until top is golden.
