This is so easy to make! I change it up by using lean ground beef (change nutritional info!) or even sliced mushrooms to replace the meat. This is so easy to make! I change it up by using lean ground beef (change nutritional info!) or even sliced mushrooms to replace the meat.
Number of Servings: 6


    8 oz dried shaped pasta, like rigatoni or elbows
    1 lb. mild sweet turkey Italian sausage, sliced
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1, 26 oz jar pasta sauce, plus 1 oz more from leftover jar or no-salt tomato sauce
    1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
    2 tsp. Italian seasoning
    salt and pepper to taste


1) Cook pasta using directions on package, leaving pasta al dente. (The pasta will continue to cook in the oven.)

2) In a large, nonstick skillet sprayed with nonstick spray, cook the sliced sausage links with the garlic until sausage is brown.

3) Stir together pasta sauce, 3/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese, salt and pepper, and Italian seasoning. Add the cooked pasta, sausage, and garlic. Stir gently to combine. Spoon the mixture into a 3 quart casserole dish.

4) Cover dish with ovenproof lid or aluminum foil in 375 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until almost heated through. Remove from oven, uncover, sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup of mozzarella. Bake uncovered for 3-5 minutes, until cheese is melted.

  • Watch out! Some brands of turkey sausage use pork casing, as I discovered this evening. I ended up cutting casing off, cooking it until browned sides, then sliced into chunks. I'd never tried turkey Italian sausage before & didn't care for the chunks of gristle? So I'd use different meat next time. - 3/3/13
