Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al dente, or about 2 minutes less than directed on the package.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large deep skillet or saucepan. Add onion, mushrooms, carrots, peppers, garlic and basil. Cook until vegetables are soft, about 8 minutes.
  4. Stir in tomato puree, sausage, cooked pasta and 2 Tbsp. parsley. Heat through. Transfer to a 13x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with remaining parsley and mozzarella cheese. Bake 10 to 15 minutes until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

This is a good basic recipe with lots of room to make it your own. I use red, green, and yellow peppers and I mix mozzarella throughout the dish, rather than just on the top. A great recipe to build from!

Contadina Garden Vegetable Pasta Bake Haiku: "Wouldn't mind more vegg. So I added zucchini! No mushrooms for me!" Didn't have mushrooms, so I replaced w/ zucchini; hey, they're growing in my garden, so they're relevant to the recipe's title! I halved the recipe for 2 adults and 1 child (very little leftovers) and used a 15 oz. can of crushed tomatoes, rather than pureed. Made it a day ahead, so I let it sit on the counter at room temp a little over an hr. b4 topping w/ cheese and putting it in the oven for closer to 25-30 min., as I wanted to ensure even heating, but not mushy pasta. A very colorful nice dish!
