To save a dish, be sure to use an ovenproof skillet when making this 30-minute recipe. Add the pasta, sauce, and cheese to the sauteed sausage, peppers, and onions and bake in the skillet until hot and bubbly.


Skillet Four-Cheese Baked Pasta

Servings: 8 servings

     tablespoon  olive oil
     jar  (26 ounces) marinara sauce

Heat oven to 450 F. Cook pasta following package directions. Drain.
While pasta is cooking, cut sausage into 1/2-inch slices. Seed and slice peppers and slice onion for a total of 4 cups. Heat olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage, peppers and onions. Cook, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until peppers and onions are tender and the sausage is cooked through. Add sauce and bring to a simmer. Stir in the drained pasta and 1 cup of the cheese.
