Ingredients

  • 2

    lbs Italian sausage

  • 1

    lb ziti pasta (penne or rigatoni)

  • 500

    g tomato sauce

  • 3

    cups mozzarella cheese

  • 1

    cup parmesan cheese

    tablespoons dried basil

    teaspoon dried oregano

    cup extra virgin olive oil

Directions

1 Add tomato sauce,rosemary,oregano,chili peppers,sugar and basil to a pot. 2 Bring to boil and simmer one hour. Remove chili peppers. 3 Cook pasta to al dente (little chewy). You don't want to overcook it as it cooks in the baking also. 4 Remove sausage from casing and cook in 1/2 cup olive oil over medium high till browned. 5 Add cooked sausage and all the oil (don't drain)to the tomato sauce and mix. 6 Add cooked pasta into a 9x13 baking pan. 7 Add the sausage and sauce over top and toss. 8 Add parmesan on top and then cover with shredded mozzarella. 9 Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes at 350°F (put toothpicks so cheese doesn't stick). 10 Remover foil and continue to bake 10 minutes (watch cheese so it doesn't burn). 11 Remove from oven and let set 10 minutes before serving to allow it to set.
