Add something cheesy to your family's Italian dinner. Serve pasta with pork sausage and tomato sauce - ready in 25 minutes!
oz. (2 2/3 cups) uncooked penne (tube-shaped pasta)
lb. bulk Italian pork sausage
(15-oz.) container refrigerated tomato pasta sauce
cup shredded fresh basil
oz. mozzarella cheese, diced (1/2 cup)
oz. (1/4 cup) shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
Cook penne to desired doneness as directed on package. Drain; cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, brown sausage in large saucepan. Drain; return to saucepan. Add pasta sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in basil and mozzarella cheese. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is slightly melted.
To serve, spoon sauce mixture over cooked pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Rigatoni or fusilli can be used in place of the penne.
Try fresh mozzarella in this recipe. Made from whole milk, fresh mozzarella is softer, less elastic and sweeter than regular mozzarella, which is made from skim or part-skim milk.
