  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. In large bowl, mix pasta, cooking sauce, sausage, tomatoes and 1/2 cup of the cheese. Spread in baking dish.
  3. Cover; bake 20 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until hot in center and bubbly around edges, sprinkling with remaining 1/2 cup cheese during last 5 minutes of baking.


  • When cooking the pasta, cook only the minimum amount of time listed on the package; the pasta will continue to cook and absorb liquid while baking.
  • In this recipe, we drain the diced tomatoes so the red color in the tomato juice doesn't turn the sauce pink.

Very easy, very good! I used a mix of sharp cheddar and Colby jack cheeses.

I think the main thing to remember here, is these starter sauces are not inteneded to make gourmet meals but to help busy people prepare and make a family dinner in a short period of time and wi...

I tried this recipe and it was pretty good. I will probably make it again, but will add some sweet onion, garlic, and definitely brown the smoked sausage. My kids said it needed some bacon so I...

I used crumbled up sausage, and added some green pepper and red onion, and some broccoli flowerettes. Topped with mozzarella cheese

This recipe was seriously saved, by the review of Terry E. I sauteed some roasted garlic chicken sausage, as that is what I had. I like sausage crisp, so I wasn't going to bake it raw. Like that...
