dry penne pasta
coarsely chopped onion
red bell pepper, cut in 1-inch pieces
green bell pepper, cut in 1-inch pieces
1 (28 ounce) can
CONTADINA® Tomato Puree
precooked smoked chicken sausage, such as andouille or chorizo, sliced
chopped Italian parsley, divided
shredded mozzarella cheese
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!
