Baked Pasta with Sausage


This is always a favorite at my house – and we call it “crunchy pasta”. We have lots of ways to make it, and this way with sausage was really good.


1/2 lb. sausage, casings removed

1 medium onion, chopped

1 c. marinara sauce

1/2 lb. penne or similar

Mozzarella cheese, shredded

Parmesan cheese, grated


Preheat the broiler.

Cook the pasta.

In the meantime, sauté the onions in some olive oil. Add the sausage and cook until it is cooked through. Break it up into small pieces. Add the marinara sauce and cook until well heated through. Set aside until the pasta is done.

Drain the pasta and add the sauce. Mix well.

Grease a casserole dish. Pour in the pasta and spread out evenly. Top with the cheeses.

Broil until the top turns brown and starts to get crunchy.
