Make This Monday

Wondering what to make for dinner? This recipe is a favorite in my family. It will take about 25 minutes to prepare, and another half hour or so in the oven, but it is well worth it and we are usually able to get 2 meals out of it.

Italian Sausage and Penne Bake

3 links mild Italian sausage
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 (15 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
salt, oregano, and red pepper to taste
8 ounces penne pasta, cooked
1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend


1.Saute sausage and garlic in olive oil until browned.
2.Add tomato paste, vinegar, tomatoes, and seasonings. Cover & simmer for 15 minutes.
3.Combine with pasta in 9x13 pan.
4.Top with cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
