2 c penne pasta, dry
2 c Prego Italian Light Smart pasta sauce

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

Directions:

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.

5. Bake 15-20 minutes or until sauce begins to bubble, cheese is melted, and cavatini is heated through.
