This is not your lunch ladies mostaccioli! Or your wedding day mostaccioli. This delicious Baked Mostaccioli is loaded with fresh Italian sausage, sweet onions, green bell peppers, minced garlic, and marinara. It is then topped with fresh Parmesan, mozzarella and provolone cheese. Baked Mostaccioli can be prepped in advance, loaded in the refrigerator and baked at the optimum time.

Yum! This cheesy and easy casserole is fantastic and definitely feeds a crowd. The Italian sausage adds just the right amount of spice to the dish. The three types of cheese make the casserole super cheesy (and delicious). Beth's Baked Mostaccioli would be a simple weeknight meal. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
