Baked Italian Penne with Sausage

2 Feb

Here’s another good way to hide a bunch of spinach in your kid’s dinner 🙂 Enjoy.


– 1 box of Ronzoni Penne Pasta
– 12 oz turkey Italian sausage
– 1 jar of Prego “health smart” pasta sauce
– 8 oz reduced fat ricotta cheese
– 1 tsp oregano
– 1 tsp garlic powder
– 1 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese


1. Cook turkey sausage and drain fat.

2. Boil noodles until al dente.

3. Mix drained noodles, sausage, ricotta, garlic, oregano, and all but 1/2 cup of sauce.

4. Pour into an oven-safe pan. A 9×9 would probably work. I used a smaller, deep, oval pan.

5. Pour remaining 1/2 cup of sauce over top of pasta. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella evenly over top.

6. Bake at 350 for 30 min.

7. Allow pasta to sit for 5-10 min before serving.
