Stovetop Ziti

This isn't too terribly different from other recipes I've tried but the kids LOVED it and they ate most of the broccoli! (Although next time I will chop it a bit smaller!)

1 pound ziti
1 bag broccoli florets
1 jar marinara sauce
1 cup ricotta
4 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese, as desired

Cook pasta as box directs, adding broccoli 4 minutes before pasta is done.

Meanwhile, mix marinara sauce and about 1/2 the ricotta in saucepan; cook over medium-low heat until hot.

Drain pasta and broccoli; return to pot. Add sauce mixture, toss to mix and coat. Immediately add mozzarella and stir to allow mozzarella to melt.

Sprinkle with Parmesan and dollop with ricotta as desired.
