It has been a while but here is a new recipe.
1 package of Italian style sausage, mine was about 20 oz
1 standard box of pasta, such as macaroni or ziti
24 oz of pasta sauce, I used my favorite mushroom tomato sauce
15 oz of ricotta cheese
2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tbs olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
I started by cutting open the sausage skins and removing the meat essentially turning it into ground sausage. I like my sausage ground because it cooks faster and I like how it mixes better into the pasta. This is just my preference with this particular dish. You could cook the sausages whole and slice them up if you prefer.
The final steps are not necessary because the meal is now ready to eat, it just makes it extra special. Turn the oven to 350 degrees. Pour all the pasta into a 13x9 baking dish and cover it with 2 cups of mozzarella cheese. Put the dish into the oven until the mozzarella cheese melts. This takes about 10 minutes.
