Get Baked on a Friday Night

It’s Friday. No one wants to cook on Friday. The work week is over and you just want to hang out, or maybe go out. Here’s a really easy (but still healthy) dish that’s kid-friendly and time-sensitive. Sensitive to your valuable time, that is…

Friday Night Pasta Bake

–2 cups uncooked penne
–2 links of pre-cooked sausage (I used this one)
–1 28oz can of whole, peeled tomatoes (still in the juice)

–2 oz. grated asiago cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

While pasta is cooking, sear sausages (they are pre-cooked but you’ll want to give ’em a good searing and warm up).  Remove them to a cutting board and slice into 1/4″ thick rounds.  (You’ll notice four sausages above in the picture because I kept the other two for other dishes).

Pour the can of whole peeled tomatoes and sauce into the same skillet used for the sausages.  Add the sausage slices and the cooked pasta. Mix together until all the pasta and sausage is coated with the tomato liquid.

Pour into an oven-safe dish.  Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top and cook for 10 minutes until dish is warmed through and the cheese is melted.
