"This hearty pasta dish was inspired by the delicious sausage rolls served at our favorite Italian restaurant," relates Vicky Benscoter of Birmingham, Alabama. "I serve if frequently for supper since it's easy to prepare and my husband thinks it's great!"

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) uncooked penne pasta
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound Italian turkey sausage links, casings removed
  • 3 cups fat-free meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. In a large skillet, saute green pepper and onion in oil for 6-7 minutes. Add sausage; cook and stir until sausage is no longer pink. Drain. Stir in the spaghetti sauce and pasta.
  2. Transfer to a 3-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with cheeses. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
