  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add sausage, crumble and cook until no longer pink and lightly browned. Drain and transfer into a large mixing bowl. Meanwhile prepare ziti according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water, cover and set aside.
  2. Using the same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add eggplant and cook until tender and lightly browned. Transfer to bowl with sausage.
  3. Using the same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, sauté until tender. Pour wine into skillet, increase heat to medium-high and continue to stir until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add tomatoes and reduce heat to medium. Simmer for 10 minutes. To the bowl with the sausage mixture, add cooked pasta, basil, olives, 2 cups of mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, salt and pepper. Stir to combine ingredients.
  4. Transfer mixture to a greased 3-quart baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Cover and bake at 400 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 5 minutes longer, or until lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Footnotes

  • To streamline preparation, the same oven proof fry pan can be used for sauteing the vegetables and sausages on the stove top and then baking the pasta dish in the oven.

Great recipe - and a great combination of flavors! The only thing I did differest was using fresh spinach instead of eggplant. I love the addition of the kalamata olives! This was a nice twist o...

Always great with Johnsonville! So easy to make and always turns out like a gourmet dish. I alter the ingredients based on what I have on hand, but using the core ingredients you can't go wrong.

This was pretty good. I added about half of the wine it called for based on the comments by another reviewer that the wine was overpowering. I added a pinch of dried oregano and about 3/4 teas...

If you love Mediterranean flavors, you will love this dish. I followed the recipe with the exception of using dried basil instead of the fresh. I also didn’t bother with broiling the cheese at...
