Pasta al Forno

My favorite pasta dish of all time is probably lasagna. All that goodness baked into every slice, who could resist. The one thing I don’t love about lasagna is the time and effort it takes to make. And that is where Pasta al Forno comes in! The literal translation is pasta to the oven, or baked pasta. This dish has everything I love about lasagna, but doesn’t require that layered assembly. Give the recipe a try and it’s sure to be a new favorite.

The sauce starts out with some sauteed onion and garlic. Once those have some color, you’ll add one pound of ground Italian sausage. I opted for mild, but you’re welcome to use a spicier sausage to suit your taste. Break the sausage into small crumbles and cook until browned. Drain off the excess grease, then add the full can of tomato puree. Turn the heat down to a gentle simmer and let those flavors meld together for a good 30 minutes.
