    Description: This is a recipe for an individual serving of low carb baked ziti using Dreamfield's penne pasta.

    I make individual servings for myself so I can closely monitor the carbs. You can make this as a family size recipe too. Follow the same directions for layering the ingredients.
    Ingredients: Individual Size:

    1 slice of provolone cheese (1 carb)
    2 Tablespoons of sour cream (2 carbs)

    3/4 cup (dry) Dreamfields Penne (5 digestable carbs)

    (you could also add some chopped onion to sauce if you prefer and some ground beef depending on your sauce choice)
