How To Make This Delicious Recipe

1. Rigatoni pasta (I like using Barilla gluten free pasta) 2. Italian sausage 3. jarred pasta sauce 4. fresh mozzarella cheese 5. grated parmesan cheese


First, preheat your oven to 350º degrees. Next, cook the Italian sausage. Remove the sausages from the casing and cook them like ground beef to create a perfectly meaty pasta sauce.

While the sausage is cooking, start making the pasta. Fill a large stockpot with water, add salt, and set to boil.

Next, stir the pasta sauce into the sausage. Add the pasta to a casserole dish or your skillet (if you’re baking in that). Pour the pasta sauce over and stir.

Nestle the mozzarella cheese throughout the pasta and sausage. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until bubbly and golden on top.
