If you love pasta as I do , you will love this!!


1 pound rotini pasta or penne
3/4 pound hot Italian sausage
2 sweet red peppers
1 large onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 jar 26 ounces marinara sauce (home made would be nice here )
2 cups shredded Italian four cheese blend


1. Heat oven to 450. Cook pasta and drain

2. While pasta is cooking, cut sausage into 1/2 inch slices. Seed and slice peppers and slice onion for a total of 4 cups. Heat olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium high heat.Add sausage,peppers,and onions. Cook 10 minutes stirring occasionally, until peppers and onions are tender and the sausage is cooked through. Add sauce and bring to a simmer. Stir in the drained pasta and 1 cup of the cheese.

3. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the pasta and bake at 450 for 8 minutes or until cheese melts and casserole starts to bubble. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
