Don't call for takeout pizza tonight. In just 30 minutes, you can create this cheesy, crave-able dish, made with just a few simple ingredients.

Ingredients

1
package (16 oz) penne pasta
3
links sweet Italian sausage, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1
medium green bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1
can (15 oz) Muir Glen™ organic pizza sauce
1
can (6 oz) pitted ripe olives, drained, sliced
1
can (4 oz) mushrooms pieces and stems, drained
1
large bunch fresh basil, stems removed, leaves coarsely chopped
2
cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)
1/2
cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2
cup sliced pepperoni

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package, using minimum cook time.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, cook sausage, bell pepper and onion over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until sausage is no longer pink and vegetables are crisp-tender.
  • 3 In baking dish, mix pasta and pizza sauce. Add sausage-vegetable mixture, olives, mushrooms and basil; toss until well combined. Sprinkle with cheeses; top with pepperoni.
  • 4 Bake uncovered 8 to 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated and cheese is melted.
Tips  

To make this dish more “figure-friendly,” use Italian turkey sausage and turkey pepperoni.

Give this casserole a spicy kick by adding 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes to the pizza sauce before mixing it with the pasta.
