Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 cup cooked diced chicken
  • 6 cooked Italian sausage links, cut in ¼-inch slices
  • 1 jar (26 oz) spaghetti sauce (you can use more if you like a saucy casserole)
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella or parmesan cheese
  • 8 oz penne pasta (or any shape you have on hand), cooked al dente
  • ¼ cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup large diced bell peppers--I mixed red and green
  • 2 cups shredded pizza cheese (see NOTES)
  • 2 tbs shredded Asiago cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly spray a 2-quart round or 11x7-inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl mix all ingredients except the 2 cups pizza cheese and the Asiago cheese.
  3. Turn into prepared pan.
  4. Top with the shredded pizza cheese and the Asiago.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until top is nicely browned and bubbly.
Notes
You can also use Italian Blend shredded cheese (sold in the dairy case). If you can't find this, then mozzarella or cheddar will do.
