15 Min


35 Min


3/4 lb
raw, spicy turkey sausage, casings removed
1 medium
onion, chopped
1 medium
green pepper, chopped
28 oz
canned diced tomatoes
10 oz
frozen green peas, thawed
2 Tbsp
canned tomato paste
1 tsp
dried oregano
1 tsp
dried basil
1/2 tsp
dried thyme
1/2 tsp
fennel seed
1/2 tsp
table salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp
ground black pepper
12 oz
uncooked zite, cooked according to package directions
6 oz
shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350*F.
Crumble the sausage meat into a large saucepan and brown over medium heat, stirring often, about 4 minutes.

Drain off any fat, then add the onion and bell pepper. Cook, stirring often, until softened, about 3 minutes.
Stir in the tomatoes, peas, tomato paste, oregano, basil, thyme, fennel seed, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat and cook uncovered 5 minutes, stirring often. Stir in the cooked pasta and half the cheese.
Spread evenly in a 9x13 inch baking pan. Top evenly with the remaining cheese. Bake until the cheese has melted and the casserole is bubbling, about 20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes at room temperature before slicing into 8 pieces.
