What meal can I make for four people with ziti pasta and diced tomato's?

I am making dinner and all I have is ziti pasta, a can of diced tomatoes and 2 bags of parmesan cheese, is there anything I can cook with this stuff?

you can cook the tomatoes for a long time until they start to break down and loose the can taste and acidity. I don't know if you have these things but for seasoning oregano, basil, thyme, salt and pepper. And again if you have start with some onions simmered in oil along with veggies. carrots, peppers, mushrooms, whatever. add tomato paste then add diced tomatoes. depending on how much your makeing, let it simmer for an hour or so. add to cooked pasta and top with cheese.

Yeah cook it all and put some garlic and oregano/italian seasoning in it (and some butter on the noodles), and that'll come out okay!

sprinkle the seasoning on top or mix it in?

Mix it in with the tomatoes. Taste the tomatoes, too. Sometimes they have a little bit of a bitter taste. If so, add a tiny amt of sugar (less than 1/2 teaspoon) and it will take that acidity away. Then mix the tomatoes/spices in with the buttered noodles... Voila!
