Baked Macaroni with Sausage
I needed a no fuss meal that could keep for several hours since everyone was coming home at different times.
The first to arrive got the pasta fresh out of the oven.
Everyone else gets the leftovers.
They didn’t mind and I only had to cook once.
Six cups of tomato gravy
1 1/2 pounds of cooked macaroni.
One pound ricotta cheese
One pound of mozzarella cheese
2 pounds of cooked chopped Italian sausage
Assemble everything in a line.
The tomato sauce, cooked macaroni, cooked sausage. ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, Romano cheese.
Use a deep 9 x 12 baking pan.
Layer with about two cups of tomato gravy, then half the macaroni, half the sausage, half the ricotta cheese, half the mozzarella and a good sprinkling of the Romano cheese.
Continue with another layer of the same ending with the last of the gravy and more Romano cheese.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 till bubbling hot about forty minutes.
I served this with a big green salad with homemade garlic croutons..
