How to Make Sauteed Onion & Tomato Sandwiches

If you want a light Italian inspired lunch these sauteed onion and tomato sandwiches are a perfect choice. The simple flavors such as basil and honey mustard blend beautifully into the sandwich.

Directions
1. 
Stir the sauce, 1 cup mozzarella cheese and ziti in a large bowl. Spoon the mixture into a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese.
2. 
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling.
Tips:
1. 
To freeze, prepare the ziti but do not bake. Cover it tightly with foil and freeze. Bake frozen ziti uncovered at 350 degrees F. for 1 hour or until hot and bubbling. Or refrigerate frozen ziti for 24 hours to thaw. Bake thawed ziti uncovered at 350 degrees F. for 45 minutes or until hot and bubbling.
2. 
For 8 servings, double the recipe. Spoon into a 3-quart shallow baking dish and bake for 45 minutes or until hot and bubbling.
