So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

Add the cooked sirloin/sausage, and mix.

Chef’s Note: At this time add a bit of salt and pepper, to the mixture, to taste.
10
Chef’s Note: I’m not adding a lot of additional spices to this dish because most of the flavor is coming from the tomato sauce. However, any additional spices are up to you.
11
Grease the insides of a large baking dish, or 4 medium ramekins.
12
Add the pasta/sauce/sausage mixture.
13
I wanted my dish to be a bit juicier, so I added more tomato sauce.
14
Cover with the mozzarella cheese.
15
Place in the preheated oven and allow the dish to bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly, and begins to brown..
16
PLATE/PRESENT

Serve with a small side salad, and some nice crusty bread. Enjoy.

Keep the faith, and keep cooking.

Additionals: I'm thinking that some black or kalamata olives might give it a bit of a kick, and possibly some sautéed mushrooms...
