Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat the vegetable oil with butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook the onion, celery, and green pepper until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Mix in the pork sausage, and cook until the meat is browned, breaking it up into crumbles as it cooks, about 8 more minutes. Drain off excess grease. Stir in the tomatoes, garlic powder, basil, sage, and Worcestershire sauce, mixing until well combined.
  3. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the egg noodles, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink. Mix the noodles gently into the pork mixture, and place into a 9x12-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the top with Cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbling and browned, 30 to 40 minutes.

This was a hit with the whole family even without having the cheese to sprinkle on top. I left out the celery since we are not big fans of it but I did add some fresh minced garlic with the onion. I also used fresh mild italian sausage and for those who like things spicier use a spicier sausage. It was a fast meal and served with a salad made a complete meal.

Very tasty - my favorite kind of meal for a cool, fall evening! I added fresh garlic to the onion/pepper/celery mix, and used whole wheat penne instead of egg noodles because that's what we had on hand. Served it with a fresh green salad - delicious, and a hit with the whole family.

This was awesome!!!I used stewed tomatoes as that was the only thing I had on hand.I also used fettuccini as i didnt have any egg noodles...Also no green peppers so I had used the orange,yellow and red peppers only...OMG this was so good so knowing I didnt have the green peppers,tomatoes and egg noodles I know it would have had the same effect on the meal itself...For my critic of a 17yr son that thinks he is a better cook than me he liked it alot...A keeper!!!
