I had several jars of spaghetti sauce that I got on sale. I used 1 1/2 jars of sauce instead of the stewed tomatoes, sauce, oregano, parsley, and black pepper. I also just put it in the oven for 30 min without doing the foil. Came out very good!

This kielbasa pasta casserole is a hearty meal. Super cheesy, it's a snap to prepare after a day at the office or running around with kids. We loved the savory flavor of the Polish sausage. One bonus with this easy dinner recipe is that it makes your kitchen smell like a pizzeria while cooking! It kind of tastes like pizza too... Yum!
