Serves:

6 - 8

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

40 Min

Ingredients

1 lb
sweet or hot italian sausage (your choice)
3 can(s)
diced tomatoes (14 oz. ea.)
3 can(s)
mushrooms (4 -6 oz. ea.)
1 lb
pasta, uncooked (penne, ziti, or similar)
2 c
mozzarella cheese (shredded)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350
2
Remove sausage from casings and brown in a large pot, break apart sausage, as it cooks, into bite size chunks.
3
While sausage is cooking, cook your pasta according to package directions for al dente, drain and set aside.
4
After sausage has browned add all the tomatoes and mushrooms into the pot with the sausage. Allow the (sauce) to simmer for about 20 mins, longer if you like.
5
In a 2qt. baking dish, place half the pasta and sprinkle a handful of mozzerella over top, then add remaining pasta. Add the sausage (sauce) over the pasta, making sure to get every drop of it in there.
6
The broth from the sausage tomatoes will cook into the pasta and finish up it's cooking time, so be sure and get all the liguid into the dish ;p.
7
Add the remaining cheese over top of sausage and cook (covered) for 30 mins. Remove cover and cook an additional 10 mins., or until cheese is nicely browned.
8
This recipes makes more than my family of four can eat in one setting, but the leftovers are much better the next day! Also, it freezes very well, I don't add the cheese until I'm ready to cook if frozen.
