Baked Ziti

I've tried a few different ziti recipes over time, but the Italian blood in me won't accept just any. Here is a recipe I found that is quite tasty and easy to make! Is there a better combination? I think not!

1 (16 ounce) package ziti pasta
24 ounces ricotta cheese
1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 (32 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. 
Add ziti and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and rinse. 
Preheat oven to 375.
In a medium bowl, mix ziti, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, egg and 1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce. 
 Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish and spoon in ziti mixture. 
Top with remaining spaghetti sauce, followed by Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes.
