4 ounces (1 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook sausage in 12-inch skillet until browned (5 to 6 minutes). Stir in bell pepper, zucchini, basil and pasta sauce. Cover; cook until vegetables are fork tender (4 to 5 minutes).

Stir in cooked noodles. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover; let stand 1 minute.

Recipe Tip

Successful pasta is easy with a few pasta pointers:

-Be sure to cook pasta in rapidly boiling water. This prevents the pasta from sticking together.

-Adding a little oil to the cooking water can help prevent pasta from sticking together and prevent boil overs.

-Don't over cook pasta. Check the pasta a few minutes before the recommended doneness time. It should be "al dente" or tender, but still firm.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Are the directions correct? Should it be stack "zucchini" slices instead of "cheese" slices??
Test Kitchen Comment


The directions are correct. The cheese slices need to be but into thin strips and stacking them is a good way to do this so you can cut several strips at a time.

Easy to make and very tasty. I substituted lasagne noodles with mini farfalle and used sweet sausage patties, browned, and crumbled.
