This delicious pasta dish reminds me of a cross between spaghetti and cheese pizza. I appreciate this quick-to-make meal on busy weeknights.—Christopher Gordon, Springfield, Missouri

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 ounces ziti, cooked and drained
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
