Ingredients

  • 1

    (1-pound) package uncooked ziti (short tube-shaped pasta)

  • 1

    pound hot turkey Italian sausage links

  • 1

    cup chopped onion

  • 2

    garlic cloves, minced

  • 1

    tablespoon tomato paste

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon black pepper

  • 2

    (14.5-ounce) cans petite-diced tomatoes, undrained

  • 1/4

    cup chopped fresh basil

  • Cooking spray

  • 1

    cup (4 ounces) shredded fresh mozzarella cheese

  • 1

    cup (4 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain the pasta, and set aside. Remove casings from sausage. Cook sausage, onion, and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Add the tomato paste, salt, pepper, and tomatoes, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine cooked pasta, sausage mixture, and basil. Place half of the pasta mixture in a 4-quart casserole coated with cooking spray. Top with half of mozzarella and half of Parmesan. Repeat layers. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until bubbly.
