Ingredients

1/2 box
penne pasta
1 lb
ground beef
2
turkey sausage links, sliced
6 oz
tomato pasta
1
knorr chicken stock
1/4 c
dry white wine
1 small
onion
1 Tbsp
minced garlic
1
bay leaf
1 tsp
oregano, or to taste
1 tsp
crushed red pepper, or to taste
1 tsp
kosher salt, or to taste
1 Tbsp
butter, melted
3/4 c
breadcrumbs
1 c
shredded parmesan romano cheese blend
2 Tbsp
olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cook your pasta in salted water as directed on box. Set aside.
2
In a large saute pan, add your olive oil and allow to get warm over medium heat. Add your bay leaf, onion, and garlic. Followed by whisking in your knorr stock pack.
3
Once your onions start to brown, add your wine. Whisk until full incorporated, then add your beef. Season with salt, crushed red pepper, and oregano. Allow beef to cook partially though.
4
Stir in tomato paste and sliced sausage. I used turkey chourico, which is a portuguese sausage, but use what you have available to you.
5
Cover and allow to simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes or so.
6
While you are waiting, mix breadcrumbs with melted butter.
7
Grease your baking dish, and pour in prepared pasta. Remove meat sauce from heat, and remove the bay leaf from your sauce. Pour the meat sauce over pasta. Top with breadcrumbs and shredded cheese. Allow to bake in the oven for about 10 minutes.
