Ziti with meat sauce

Not a make ahead, but easy enough my 9 year old made it.

1 box of Ziti noodles, cooked
28 oz. of tomatoes, diced
15 oz. can of tomato sauce
1-2 tsp. each onion flake, Italian seasoning, garlic powder--you can add more or less for your taste
1 lb. sausage
1/2 c. ricotta cheese
1/4 c. shredded mozzarella

Cook noodles according to directions
Chop, brown and drain sausage in large skillet
Add tomatoes and sauce and seasonings
Simmer 30-45 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally
Add cooked noodles and ricotta
Stir in ricotta cheese until it's incorporated with the mixture--you don't want to see any white chunks of cheese
Add shredded mozzarella and cover skillet until mozzarella is melted
Serve with salad, warm bread and fruit
