Baked Ratatouille-Sausage Penne
Baked Ratatouille-Sausage Penne was one of my favorite back to school dishes when I was a child. My mother would always make our favorite dinners the week that we returned to school – I guess to give us something to look forward to even though the summer was over and we were back in our routine! It is still a dish I love to make when I have had a hard day at the office!
It’s super simple to put this dish together. Simply cook the sausages. Make a simple tomato and eggplant sauce and cook some penne pasta. Mix the pasta and sauce together and place it in an ovenproof dish to bake for 30-35 minutes. So easy and extremely delicious!
