Ziti! Will it BBQ?
Will it BBQ? Ziti!
In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Ziti and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!!
1 Package of Ziti
Desired amount of Red Sauce
1 Cup ricotta Cheese
Sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese
1 lb Mozzarella Cheese
InstructionsThis works best with a homemade red sauce but you can use a jarred sauce if you have to, either way use the Spaghetti Sauce Seasoning to add a little zip to your sauce. After boiling your pasta (undercook it slightly as it will cook more in the smoker) put it in a foil pan and add your sauce, then put spread out your Ricotta Cheese and Mozzarella cheese in a layer above the pasta and sprinkle on some Parmesan as well. Put it in your smoker and smoke for about 45 minutes at 375°, remove and serve hot.
So, Will it BBQ?
The cheese and sauce are going to be the two main vehicles for the smoke here and while I don’t think either of them picked up a lot of smoke it was enough to give it a nice smokiness without being overpowering. This is a definite yes, will BBQ!
