Skillet Four-Cheese Baked Pasta

  • Currently 4/5

Everyone enjoyed this.  (I do think I used considerably more cheese than it called for though!)

1 lb rotini or penne pasta
3/4 lb Italian sausage
2 red sweet peppers
1 onion
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 26 oz jar marinara sauce
2 cups shredded Italian 4-cheese blend
1. Heat oven to 450 F. Cook pasta following package directions. Drain.
2. While pasta is cooking, cut sausage into 1/2-inch slices. Seed and slice peppers and slice onion for a total of 4 cups. Heat olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage, peppers and onions. Cook, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until peppers and onions are tender and the sausage is cooked through. Add sauce and bring to a simmer. Stir in the drained pasta and 1 cup of the cheese.
3. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the pasta and bake at 450 F for 8 minutes or until cheese melts and casserole starts to bubble. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
