Easy Baked Pasta with Sausage

You can never go wrong with baked pasta with a meaty sauce and that's exactly what I did with what I had in the fridge tonight. Baked shells with Sausage Tomato Sauce was simple and incredibly comforting! Hey, we needed some comforting after the horrible Super Bowl lost we suffered!


1/2 lb Italian Sausauge, casings removed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 c heavy cream
1/4 c Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 c Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Medium shells, cooked al dente


1. Preheat oven to 450F. Grease a baking pan.

2. Cook sausage over medium heat, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until browned, 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, red pepper flakes and cook untili fragrant, 1 minute.

3. Stir in tomatoes and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer 5 minutes until slightly thickened.

4. Stir in shells, heavy cream and Parmesan. Transfer to baking pan and sprinkle with Mozzarella. Bake until cheese is melted and browned, 10 minutes.
