PASTA BAKE






PASTA BAKE:

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 pounds ground turkey breast, browned and drained
1/2 pound Italian Sausage, browned and drained
1 small onion, diced 
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 package skim-milk shredded mozzarella cheese
1 package skim-milk shredded Italian cheese (5 Cheese works great)
1 large container Ricotta Cheese

DIRECTIONS:

Saute diced onion and garlic in large saucepan, when onions become translucent, add ground turkey and Italian sausage.  Brown and thoroughly drain the turkey / sausage.  Pour sauce over meat mixture and simmer on low.

Prepare Penne Pasta according to direction and drain.  Add to meat mixture and combine thoroughly.

While pasta is cooking, mix the shredded cheeses together.

In 9X9 casserole dish, spread a layer of the meat mixture to cover the bottom, then spread on a layer of the ricotta, and sprinkle some of the shredded cheese.  Repeat until the cheese is on the top layer.

Place in a 350 Degree Fahrenheit oven for approx. 45 minutes.  Cheese will be nicely brown and bubbly.  Serve with hot bread and enjoy!

***If you have cheese left over, spread it on the bread and place in the over to make a superb cheesy bread!
