Hamburger Hot Dish

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise, then thinly sliced
12 ounces lean ground beef
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
1 tablespoon minced garlic
28 oz can crushed tomatoes, undrained
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
4 cups uncooked ziti
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Have a shallow 3-quart baking dish ready.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add
zucchini and saute 5 to 6 minutes until just starting to brown.
Remove to a small bowl.

Add beef, onions, and garlic to skillet. Cook, stirring to break
up beef, until browned. Add tomatoes, seasoning, and salt. Bring
to a simmer and cook about 6 minutes for flavors to blend.

Meanwhile whisk together milk and flour in a 2-quart saucepan until
smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking often. Boil 3
to 4 minutes until slightly thickened. Remove from heat, add Cheddar
cheese and whisk until melted.

Mix meat sauce and ziti in baking dish, stir in cheese sauce and
sprinkle with Parmesan. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours.
{No need to boil the pasta; it absorbs liquid during chilling and
becomes tender.} Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake, covered, 1 1/4
hours. Uncover and bake 15 minutes longer until bubbly and lightly
