1 (12 ounce) package dry penne pasta

2 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 pound mild Italian turkey sausage

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chicken stock 

12 oz of marinara sauce

2 cups part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 12 minutes or until al dente; drain.

Heat oil in a large, deep skillet. Place sausage and onion in the skillet and cook over medium high heat until evenly brown.

Drain excess fat. Pour in chicken stock, and cook for 1 minute, stirring, to deglaze the pan. Stir in marinara sauce.  


Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Toss with cooked pasta, and place in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle top with mozzarella.

1 cup serving size
