Easy Dinners, Pasta Dishes, Turkey Sausage Dishes, Weight Watcher Friendly
2 c penne pasta, dry
2 c Prego Italian Light Smart pasta sauce
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/2 medium onion, diced
4 turkey sausage patties (I used Jimmy Dean’s Heat N’ Serve), chopped
2 oz. (about 28) Armour turkey pepperoni, cut in half
3 tbsp + 1 tsp Kraft Naturals grated Parmesan and Romano Cheese blend
1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Boil penne pasta according to package directions or until al dente. Drain noodles.
3. Cook onion and green pepper over medium heat in a large skillet until tender (about 5 minutes). Add diced turkey sausage and pepperoni halves. Continue to cook an additional 5-7 minutes or until meat is heated through. Add Prego to onion mixture. Reduce heat to low and simmer. Add cooked noodles to sauce mixture.
4. Transfer cavatini to oven-safe dish (I used individual cavatini dishes but a casserole dish works just as well.) Top evenly with grated cheese (if you are using individual cavatini dishes, top each with 2 tsp of grated cheese).
5. Bake 15-20 minutes or until sauce begins to bubble, cheese is melted, and cavatini is heated through.
