Spray nonstick spray on crock pot and turn to high. In a separate bowl mix your greek yogurt cream cheese, ricotta cheese and about two tablespoons of Italian seasoning. The cream cheese will be a bit lumpy, its fine. Spread around 2 cups of the Ragu Pasta Sauce on the bottom of the crock pot. Then place 1/3 of the ziti uncooked on top of the pasta sauce. Next drizzle about half a jar of the tomato sauce on top of the ziti. Dollop 1/3 of the cheese mixture over the ziti and lightly spread. Then cover that layer with shredded Parmesan. Repeat this two more times, layering the pasta, sauce and cheese. Cook on high for 2.5 to 3 hours until the pasta is done. That’s it!! This made a 4 quart crock pot full, so 8-10 servings.  Enjoy!

  1. When you deviate from a recipe you are no longer critiquing the original recipe. Make the recipe as is, critique it and decide if you like it it or not. When you change it so much you are now making a new recipe. The original recipe has the correct times for a thick cut of fish baked in a sauce. To add different cheeses only takes away from the taste of the fish. Sometimes, simplicity is best but like so many other North American dishes, if a little is good then a whole lot more must be better. Not so.

    I’ve never seen Greek yogurt cream cheese. Is there a reason for using this type over regular cream cheese other than calories? Can the Greek yogurt cream cheese be replaced by regular cream cheese?

        I also have looked everywhere for the print button and a pin button, but they are not showing up. Maybe I need to change the browser. Glad I read that comment.

    If you scroll to the bottom of the recipe, it clearly states in bright red letters how to print the recipes. The green PRINTER icon is below and you can easily print any recipe with removing all the pictures etc.
