An easy pasta bake that is comfort food at its best! Pasta is layered with flavourful Italian sausage, cheese and tomato pasta sauce, then baked until bubbly. Tortiglioni is similar to penne, which you can use in a pinch.
Made as the recipe listed but reduced the the ingredients by 50%. Covered the dish with foil while in the oven then removed the foil for the last 10 minutes. Loved by all. - 24 Feb 2018
Wow, this made so much food! We made some changes to the dish, and it was amazing! We only baked it for 35 minutes because the cheese on top was getting overdone on 350 degrees F. We used turkey instead of sausage and added 2 cloves of garlic and a half cup of yellow onion to spice up the turkey. Also we used 1 jar of Emmeril's "Roasted Red Pepper" sauce in addition to one jar of the marinara. Using only 3 cups of cheese instead of 4 made us feel better about the high fat content. But we used italian cheese instead of just plain mozzarella. It was excellent, and now we have food for days! - 15 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This truly is the Best Ziti Ever. It makes an enormous amount of food, so this would be great to take to a pot luck dinner or just to serve a large family. The smell while it was cooking was absolutely divine. I felt like I was at an Italian restaurant. This dish is restaurant quality. I didn't change a thing. It is perfect just the way it is. Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe. - 25 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
