Baked Pasta with Sausage and Peppers
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a nonstick pan, cook sausage over medium-high heat until browned, stirring occasionally. Drain fat, then reduce heat to medium.
  3. Add onion, peppers and garlic; cook for about 10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Stir in diced tomatoes, tomato puree and 1/4 teaspoon salt; simmer on low for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil with a dash of salt. Add pasta and cook until almost done. Drain pasta, return it to the pot, and stir in the sauce and mozzarella.
  5. Transfer pasta mixture to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and sprinkle with Romano cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes, or until browned.
  6. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Makes 8-10 servings.
