Pasta Bake

Another recipe for moms:

Pasta Bake
1lb ground sausage
1 onion
2 carrots
1tsp Italian seasonings
salt and pepper to taste
12 oz pasta
1.5-2 jars basil and tomato pasta sauce
4 C shredded mozzarella cheese

Brown the sausage in a pan with the onion and carrots. Add seasonings and salt and pepper to taste.

Boil pasta to al dente texture. Do not over-boil as it will continue to cook in the oven.

Mix sausage, vegetables, sauce, and pasta together in a large pot or bowl. I used my pasta boiling pot for this.

In a 9x19" pan, lay down a layer of pasta mixture, top with half the cheese, lay down a second layer of pasta. Bake at 425F for 20 minutes, covered with foil. Remove foil, add remaining 2 C of cheese and return to oven for 10 minutes.
