Mixing Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cook pasta according to package directions, reducing boiling time to 8 minutes.

2. Cook the sausage, peppers, onion, and garlic in hot oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often until vegetables are soft and sausage has begun to brown slightly (7-8 minutes).

3. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato sauce, sugar, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, and add 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese, stirring until melted. Stir in the cooked pasta.

4. Remove from heat, and sprinkle with mozzarella and the remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.

5. Bake in preheated oven until mixture is bubbly and cheese is golden colored (25-30 minutes). Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
