This is really easy to make and has a lot of flavor. Makes 8 servings.

1 (16 ounce) package dry pasta
1 pound lean ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce
12 ounces brown gravy
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

In a Dutch oven or large frying pan, cook and stir ground beef until brown. Add garlic, tomato sauce, gravy, cream, Parmesan cheese, oregano and basil. Simmer for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until al dente. Drain.
Combine the cooked ziti and the sauce, and spread into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
