  • Step 2

    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add ziti and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

  • Step 3

    Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute spinach and mushrooms in the hot oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add to ziti.

  • Step 4

    Add ricotta cheese, goat cheese, and 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese to the ziti mixture; combine thoroughly. Mix in spaghetti sauce and transfer to the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.

  • Step 5

    Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until bubbly and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.

  • Cook's Note:

    Preferably use a spaghetti sauce made with red wine.
