About this recipe: A simple Italian sausage and penne pasta bake, perfect for an evening when you don't have the time or energy to make lasagne - you can still enjoy this meat, cheese and pasta bake made easy and tasty.
I made this and it was really good. I ended up adding an 8 oz can of tomato sauce as it really didn't coat the penne pasta enuf... I also, made it in a 9x13 dish and it was all the way to the top before I added the cheese...I let it bake, then added the cheese to melt...I used more than an 8 oz package...I made this and shared with our neighbor whose birthday was yesterday...She is a real picky eater and she liked it... - 18 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very simple to assemble - got positive comments from the crew. Only change was to go 1/2 Italian sausage meat, 1/2 ground beef. - 28 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very good. This made a ton. I used broken lasagna noodles instead of penne and a bit more sauce, but I was using a full pound of noodles. - 27 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
