COOK TIME

Festival Sausage Bake is huge and hearty. Its large portions and smorgasbord of ingredients will remind you of the big pasta bakes your mom used to make.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound rigatoni pasta
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4 pounds hot Italian sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 large green bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 2 medium-sized onions, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 (26-ounce) jars spaghetti sauce
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
     
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage, peppers, onions, and garlic, and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until sausage is cooked through and peppers and onions are tender, stirring occasionally.
     
  3. Drain sausage mixture, and place in a large bowl. Add pasta, spaghetti sauce, and Parmesan cheese; mix well. Pour into a 9" x 13" baking dish, cover with aluminum foil, and bake 20 minutes.
     
  4. Remove foil; sprinkle sausage bake with mozzarella cheese then bake 10 minutes, or until heated through and cheese is melted.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I had to cut this in half, only two of us, I should have made the big batch and freeze one. Next time. But dontcha' know I used full cheese. Outstanding!

Made this tonight. Husband was loving just the smell when he walked in from work. It was delicious. NOTE, the amount it makes serves more like 8 people, or 4 Italians (lol)

Do you cook the pasta first

Looks delicious.... will try for the Holidays

Sorry...didn't read first instructions about cooking pasta...thanks for the wonderful recipes...I'm really enjoying trying new things for my family.
