Boring, but your doing good on the costing thing.

(not trying to be mean)
Still, i don't think people care.

Plus you never add what sauce is best.
Or what kinda mozzarella cheese, fresh, creamy, or stiff.
What kinda parm.
% of beef to fat. (lean is not very good instructions)

Still needs work.
The sour cream thing is interesting but still boring.

It is over all boring.

But the sour cream part intrigues me.
So the sour cream is interesting.

I love baked ziti and seeing as I've been attempting to cook more and more difficult dishes, this may be a sign. I'm enjoying your recipe series.

Ohhh, you do have a fan.

Don't fail know.

Make sure your next recipe is not this boring.
And come up with a 1st overall, "how to cook" guide to go along as your recipe has holes.

You two should have a debate on the matter, where you each list a recipe or two a round and jabber on about how bad the others is and why yours is better.

Sounds like fun.

It would be to hard to do so.
We would have to agree, and than is cost a factor, product quality plays a big roll.

It would be to difficult to do it in a writing forum.
Plus my knowledge is far greater than his, it would be hard to write a reason for me doing certain things.
What recipe though.

It would be fun if everyone were a chef, but not here.

So far that I've noticed, I've been supplying the recipes, commoncents has been doing an excellent job at making not a whole lot of sense and asserting his culinary skills (as if anyone really cares).

I'm simply unleashing my recipe series for those who are in college (or are going to be in college) to make.

So it is fun to critic your work, and i would not do this.

I would have to rewrite it.

This one is not a bad recipe, just a little boring. It is a college recipe, as he has stated.

I just went to a college that specialized in this field.
It is his recipe anyway, i do not need t take it over.

(Garlic)
: * 1/2 pound lean ground beef
(Season it)
: * 1 (26 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
(Season it)
No reference to what kind of sauce.
: * 3 ounces provolone cheese, sliced
* 3/4 cup sour cream
* 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded or more if you like cheese
* 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. (really salted water, not lightly) Add ziti pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes; drain.
2. In a large skillet, brown onion (don't brown the onions, sweat them. Add a pinch os salt and cook them on med low heat until translucent. Add garlic here) and (Now add) ground beef (season with oregano, coranader seed, salt, pepper, dry basil, ... taste it... season some more if needed) over medium heat. (Wrong, Med high heat) Add spaghetti sauce,(add a good pinch of sugar, and season the sauce with some of the same things you seasoned the GB) and simmer 15 minutes. (Taste, add what ever is needed from the seasonings we used)
3. Combine the sauce/beef mixture with the ziti (Slowly, one ladle at a time. no need to make it super wet. taste and re-season)

3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Layer as follows: 1/2 of the ziti/sauce/beef mixture, 4 slices of Provolone cheese, sour cream (use either recotta or sour cream, and layer 6 fresh basil leaves over it), 1/2 ziti/sauce/beef mixturei, mozzarella cheese.Top with grated Parmesan cheese. (Layer more basil)
4. Cover the pan with tinfoil, Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheeses are melted.

That is how i would improve his recipe, if i were writing it i would do a little more.
