This is a super easy casserole the whole family can enjoy with mostaccioli pasta (penne lisce) and meat sauce, all covered in a blanket of delicious Italian cheeses and baked to perfection.


  • 16 ounces mostaccioli pasta
  • 1 lb bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 large green pepper seeded veined and chopped
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 4-5 cups marinara sauce or tomato sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the mostaccioli noodles al dente according to package instructions and drain well.
  • Brown sausage in a skillet on medium heat. Remove sausage to plate; cover and keep warm.
  • Add peppers and onions to the same skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until the edges of the onions start to brown. Add garlic and cook for 1 additional minute. Remove from heat.
  • Combine the cooked sausage mixture, cooked mostaccioli, and marinara in a large baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.  Season with kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste. Sprinkle with mozzarella, and parmesan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and started to brown just a touch. If desired garnish with chopped fresh parsley. 


  • Cook the mostaccioli al dente, which means still somewhat firm. It will be baked for a bit with the sausage, veggies, and sauce. Don’t overcook it.
  • Other types of tubular pasta to use include penne, ziti, or rigatoni.
  • Use good quality Italian sausage. Most butcher shops make their own, and it tastes so much better than processed sausage with all the preservatives in it.
  • Substitute ground beef, ground turkey, or ground pork for the sausage.
  • Grate and shred your cheese fresh from the block. That way, you will not have preservatives, added enzymes, and cellulose.
