Easy Baked Penne


½ pound sweet Italian sausage or extra-lean ground beef
½ cup chopped yellow onion
½ cup chopped green pepper
24 ounces tomato sauce
1 10 ounce container Philadelphia Italian Cheese & Herb Cooking Creme, divided
1 cup shredded Mozzarella, divided
3 cups cooked pasta like penne or macaroni


1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

2. Cook the pasta according to package directions and set aside.

3. In a skillet brown the meat and the onions together until the until the meat is browned and cooked through. Stir in the spaghetti sauce and ¾ cup of the cooking creme. Sprinkle in the mozzarella and stir until melted. Pour the cooked pasta into the sauce and stir to coat.

4. Pour the mixture into a large ovenproof baker or, like I did, slip an ovenproof skillet right into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes and serve hot.
