Number of Servings: 12


    * Barilla Plus Penne Pasta, 14 oz
    * Turkey Sausage, 16 oz
    * 2% Mozzarella Cheese, 12 oz
    * Ragu Spaghetti Sauce, 1 1lb. 10 oz. jar
    * Pureed Tomatoes, 610 grams or two small cans
    * Tomato Paste, 1 6 oz can


Put a large pot of water on the stove and bring to a boil. Brown sausage. Add ragu, puree and tomatoe paste to the brown sausage pan. Simmer for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, add pasta to water and cook according to package. Do not overcook as pasta will continue to cook later.

Drain pasta and add to the sauce pan. You may need to do this in a separate large bowl if you don't have a large enough sauce pan. Put pasta mixture in two 8x8 pans or one 9x13 pan. Sprinkle cheese over the top. Bake at 350 for about 30-40 minutes until the cheese is browned and bubbly.

This recipe makes 12 generous portions. This meal freezes well. I recommend making two pans and freezing the other for another day you don't feel like cooking.

    Very Good
    This was really hearty and filling. We have plenty for tomorrow night's dinner too. I think next time I'll add more spices to jazz it up a bit. - 11/12/08
