Baked Pasta with Sausage, Tomatoes, and Cheese
Awesome, this is the best pasta I have ever had. I couldn't believe how flavorful it came out, perfectly balanced on both flavor and texture.

nonstick cooking spray
shredded fresh, reduced fat
Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃) F.
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain the pasta, and set aside.
Remove casings from sausage.
Cook sausage, onion, and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble.
Add the tomato paste, salt, pepper, and tomatoes, and bring to a boil.
Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Combine cooked pasta, sausage mixture, and basil.
Place half of the pasta mixture in a 4-quart casserole coated with cooking spray.
Top with half of mozzarella and half of Parmesan.
Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until bubbly.
