Ziti for my Sweetie

My hubs absolutely loves food sweet, chili, ziti, spaghetti .. you name it i have to add splenda to the sauce ... weird i know but if he enjoys it i am happy. Here is my recipe for ziti which has become his new favorite food, i swear he could eat it everyday.

1/2 lb pasta cooked
1/2 lb ground sweet sausage (i use the tube of Jimmy Dean)
1 (26 oz) jar marinara sauce (plus 6 spenda packets)
3 oz provolone cheese

3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t Italian seasoning

3 oz mozzarella cheese
1 T Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta. Brown meat then add sauce and simmer for 15 minutes.
Mix the sour cream with the garlic powder and Italian seasoning, (i am so add a half pack of splenda).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
After simmering add the cooked pasta to the sauce. Layer in a greased (spray with Pam) baking dish: 1/3 pasta/sauce - layer of sliced provolone - sour cream - 1/3 pasta/sauce - mozzarella cheese - 1/3 pasta/sauce - Parmesan cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.
