I made this and it was really good. I ended up adding an 8 oz can of tomato sauce as it really didn't coat the penne pasta enuf... I also, made it in a 9x13 dish and it was all the way to the top before I added the cheese...I let it bake, then added the cheese to melt...I used more than an 8 oz package...I made this and shared with our neighbor whose birthday was yesterday...She is a real picky eater and she liked it...-18 Mar 2009

Very simple to assemble - got positive comments from the crew. Only change was to go 1/2 Italian sausage meat, 1/2 ground beef.-28 Apr 2009

Very good. This made a ton. I used broken lasagna noodles instead of penne and a bit more sauce, but I was using a full pound of noodles.-27 Feb 2011

Italian Sausage Bake Recipe My super easy-to-make pasta with Italian sausage links has so much flavor and everything you need to enjoy a hearty, filling dinner! With only 5 basic ingredients layered into a casserole or baking dish, the prep time is as easy as the cleanup. The sauce is as simple as your favorite jarred flavor, a spiced up marinara sauce, or some homemade spaghetti sauce. Pick out your favorite sausage links from brands like Johnsonville, Premio, Aidells, Applegate Farms, and Swaggerty Farms to make this easy pasta bake! I can't help myself, I tend to add in vegetables and cheeses that need to be used up before having to be thrown out. This dish is a wonderful casserole to make additions to. Plus, it freezes well so you can make double and freeze a batch or make it ahead for enjoying later! What Kind Of Pasta Sauce Should I Use?

I have a quick 10 Minute Homemade Pasta Sauce Recipe you can use otherwise there are great options at the grocery store. My favorite pre-made pasta sauce is Trader Joe&rsquos 3 Cheese Pasta Sauce. Barilla and Classico also make good sauces if you don&rsquot feel like making your own. Add your favorite pasta sauce to the bowl.

Pour in the cream. This makes the pasta creamy fantastic. You can absolutely leave it out if you&rsquod like.

Give the pasta a nice stir and prepare to transfer to a 9×13-inch baking dish.

Transfer half of pasta mixture into your baking dish. Top this portion with Parmesan cheese and cheddar cheese. Top with remaining pasta.

Once your cheeses are layered, top with remaining pasta.

Top with a generous amount of shredded Mozzarella cheese and it&rsquos time to bake! Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes.

Your Creamy 3 Cheese Rigatoni will come out of the oven hot, cheesy and ready for dinner. Be sure to follow Picky Palate on Instagram where you&rsquoll get previews of what&rsquos coming!

Cream Cheese And Sausage Pasta Bake

This comfort food classic is a dish we just can’t get enough of.

A baked pasta dish is classic comfort food. We already know how comforting pasta and sauce is to everyone, but when it’s baked in the oven with tons of cheese, the comfort level goes up and the stresses of our day go down. We can rest easy when we know that a deliciously simple meal like this waiting for us at the end of the day. A pasta bake is a great way to meal prep a dish like this can be made on the weekend and either eaten right away or tucked away in the freezer to make a grand appearance later in the week. Our cream cheese sausage pasta bake is an amazing meal that we think is just as good as a weeknight family supper as it is for a dinner party.

The sauce is the true star of the show here and by adding heavy cream and cream cheese to the tomato-based sauce, we’re making something truly special. A package of ground mild Italian sausage is a great way to bring amazing flavor into a pasta sauce, and we really love what it does to make this pasta bake so outstanding. Of course, we add some flair the sauce with ingredients like fresh minced garlic, a little red pepper flake for just a little bit of heat, and what pasta dish is complete without some fresh basil leaves added into the mix. The next ingredients will turn the sauce into a luxurious creamy coating for all those noodles: cream cheese and heavy cream. Need we say more? These melt into the tomato and sausage sauce, adding an irresistibly rich creaminess that is just too-too good.

Everything else is pretty simple: the noodles go into a prepared casserole dish, get tossed with the creamy pasta sauce, and then we add even more cheese on top just for good measure. Our casserole dish goes into the oven and in a matter of minutes, we’ve got a meal that is hearty, creamy, warm, comforting and delicious. Good food like this is something that the whole family gets to enjoy, and we love that it doesn’t take a ton of time to whip up a meal that is as hearty as it is comforting. A cream cheese and sausage pasta bake is one of those truly special dishes that we love coming back to because it is just so good!

Sausage and Kale Pasta Bake

Sausage and kale pasta bake is a comforting pasta casserole that&rsquos made with whole wheat pasta, sausage, kale, and sun-dried tomatoes in a creamy white sauce. It&rsquos a deliciously healthy with gluten-free and vegetarian options.

When it comes to vegetables, I always say more is better even when pasta is involved. I pack this baked pasta with nutrient dense kale, sun-dried tomatoes and a little bit of sausage. Kale is so hearty, it really holds up well in this dish.

This recipe can be made ahead of time and popped in the oven for a quick 30 minutes. And the best part? It&rsquos filled with veggies so you can just eat this for dinner and be satisfied, even though we like to eat it with a side salad like this arugula salad.

Why we love this vegetarian sausage pasta bake:

  • Stating the obvious but it’s vegetarian which means we can eat it during the week when we’re avoiding meat and it’s just as filling and satisfying as the meaty alternative
  • It’s filling and comforting perfect for cold weather dinners but also great for a hearty family meal which everyone is guaranteed to love
  • This pasta bake is also so easy to make so it’s great for a busy weeknight while still delivering big on flavour
  • Finally if you’re really missing the meat then you could totally switch the veggie ones out for a meat sausage super easily
  • If you’d like to up the veg content you could easily add extra vegetables to this pasta bake. Spinach or kale would be delicious

Vegetarian Sausage Pasta Bake Ingredients:

All you need to create this simple pasta bake is:

  • Vegetarian Sausages: Use whatever brand you prefer, I went with the Linda McCartney Red Onion and Rosemary ones
  • Onion and Garlic
  • Chopped Tomatoes: I use two tins because I like this pasta bake to be super saucy
  • Tomato Puree: For that extra hit of tomato flavour
  • Dried Herbs: I use oregano and thyme
  • Vegetable Stock: Store bought or homemade
  • Pasta: I used fusilli but use whatever short cut you prefer
  • Cheddar: Grated for topping
  • Mozzarella: Torn over the top of the pasta

How to Make a Pasta Bake

  1. First, you’ll prep your sweet potatoes. Wash, peel, and chop the sweet potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Toss them in a bowl with olive oil, garlic powder, salt & pepper to coat. Spread the potato cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for about 10 or 15 minutes until soft.
  2. Next, bring a large pot of water to a boil, and cook the pasta according to the directions on the package until al dente. Once it’s cooked, drain the water, and set the pasta aside.
  3. Cook the bacon in a large skillet on your stovetop over medium heat until crispy, then cut it into small pieces.
  4. Remove the casings from the Italian sausage and brown it in a little bit of the leftover bacon fat. When the sausage is cooked through, add the onion and garlic, and cook for another minute or so. Remove the cooked sausage with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  5. Now it’s time to make the cheese sauce. Make a roux by melting butter in a saucepan and whisking in flour. Cook for a minute, then stir in the salt & pepper.
  6. Combine the chicken stock, milk and cream in a bowl, then pour the mixture into the saucepan. Stir while cooking until the mixture forms a thick white sauce, then remove from the heat and stir in the Parmesan and some of the Mozzarella cheese.
  7. Finally, assemble your pasta bake. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray, then add the pasta, roasted sweet potatoes, browned meats and sage to the dish. Gently toss everything in the cheesy sauce, then spread out the ingredients evenly. Top the casserole with more Mozzarella. Bake the casserole at 350 degrees F until the cheese is melted and everything is bubbly and warm.

Creamy Tomato and Sausage Pasta Bake

I love pasta. And as much as I love my strong German heritage (especially Grandma’s recipe for Spaetzle), a small part of me has thought that my adoration for carbs means there has to be a little Italian blood running through these veins. Lasagna, pasta primavera, or a creamy Alfredo. I’ve made them all, but I have a soft spot for a simple pasta meal, full of flavor, but lacking on prep time and ingredients. That is where this Creamy Tomato and Sausage Pasta Bake comes into play.

No need to spend hours making your own tomato sauce for this recipe. Crack open your favorite jarred marinara or tomato basil sauce (for years I’ve loved this brand of homemade sauces from a local company in Lincoln, Nebraska).

Also. Public service announcement.

No? You’ve been missing out man. It makes canned tomato sauces take their game to another level.

Another thing I love about this recipe?

It can be made ahead of time and either kept in the fridge or freezer until needed.

Homemade freezer meals make the world go around. I’m certain of it.

The pasta bake cooks in no time.

Just add a simple lettuce salad and garlic cheese bread. Dinner is served!
