This is not the tomato-y baked ziti we all know. This, its alter ego, is a tad more sophisticated.

Serves 4

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

8 ounces dried ziti or cellentani

6-ounce piece Italian Fontina

3 ounces Genoa salami, sliced very thin

3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano

Preheat the oven to 400 F. Grease an 8-cup souffle dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook 12 minutes. Drain well and shake dry.

Shred the cheese on the large holes of a box grater. Finely julienne the salami.

Arrange one-third of the pasta in the dish; top with one-third of the cheese, half of the salami, dabs of butter, 1 tablespoon of the oregano, and salt and pepper.

Repeat layering, ending with pasta and cheese on top.

Bake, uncovered, 15 minutes, until bubbly and golden.

Stir well; mound onto plates and sprinkle with remaining oregano.
