Bacon & Sausage Pasta Bake

Last week we had some friends coming over to eat and I wanted to use some of the deer sausage we had been given.  Pasta goes a long way, so I threw together this little recipe.

Here is what you need:

1 pound sliced link sausage (Italian would be great!)

12 ounces bacon cooked and crumbled

1/2 onion chopped

2 TBS olive oil

1 Can diced tomatoes

1 jar spaghetti sauce

1 box penne pasta

1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

While your pasta is cooking, toss your onion and olive oil in a pan.  Cook on medium until the onions become clear.

Drain your pasta.

In a bowl combine the pasta, sausage, bacon, onion, diced tomatoes and spaghetti sauce.

YUM! 🙂
