Baked Pasta with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cheese

= yum. This was delicious, especially for a "light" meal. Casey and I both loved it and it was easy to make! Recipe from Cooking Light (with a few minor changes). If you like your pasta to be extra saucy, consider adding another can of diced tomatoes. Serve with garlic bread and a side salad for a great meal.

Update 10/27/10: I made this again and it is still a wonderful meal. Quite filling and makes great leftovers!


Ingredients:
1 (1 lb) package uncooked ziti (or similar pasta, I only had rotini on hand)
1 lb hot Italian turkey sausage links
1 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp tomato paste (I used a lot more than this, about 3/4 of an 6 oz can)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tbsp oregano
2 (14.5 oz) cans petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
Cooking spray
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (I used mostly fresh mozzarella which turned out fabulous)
1 cup grated fresh parmesan

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Coat a 4 quart casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain the pasta and return to pan.
Remove casings from sausage. Cook sausage, onion, and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Add tomato paste, salt, pepper, oregano, and tomatoes, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Combine cooked pasta, sausage mixture, and basil. Place half of the pasta mixture in the casserole dish coated with cooking spray. Top with half of the mozzarella and parmesan. Repeat layers. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until bubbly.

Looks delish! I just did something similar with a vodka sauce & chicken sausage along with asiago cheese. It was a BIG hit.

Christina...great job.

I am a food network addict and I often look at their website. Bobby Flay's (my favorite celebrity by the way) receipes are mostly easy and delicious.

I'm glad you shared the recipe. I love pasta, but I'm on a gluten-free diet right now. Can you share some more gluten-free pasta recipes?

This dish really looks delicious. I think we can make some modifications in this pasta, like adding some meat or more spices.

I hate saucy pasta that stains your shirt while digging it.
It pisses me off. By the way, this dish is really simple. I like how the sauce is pretty simple so you get to appreciate the individual flavors more.
