UGH! Do not use uncooked pasta as your dish will be gummy pasta! It kinda, sorta tasted like pizza but was not anything I would ever make again. Pasta should be al dente not al gummy

I've never liked using uncooked pasta in a dish -- it's never turned out well -- so I cooked it beforehand and added it to the casserole (eliminating the water in the recipe). And after browning the sausage, I sautéd minced onion, garlic, and bell pepper (all of which I like on my pizza -- and this is supposedly a pizza casserole). Also, I am lactose-intollerant, so I used soy mozzarella. It came out fantastic, and hubby raved over it, having thirds. I will definitely make it again. However, I changed the name of the recipe to Baked Ziti, because that's how it came out, not like pizza.

I'd like to see the nutritional conversion if I made this with turkey italian sausage and part-skim cheese; that would save a LOT of calories for the bread sticks!

This is a great recipe to be able to make a day ahead if you are having company. It is easy to change the pizza ingredients ie the sausage. I used some sausage, some ground beef and some pepperoni. You can add or subtract vegetables. I will definitely make again.

I cut this recipe in half, and it turned out really good. I also added mushrooms. I couldn't find the diced tomatoes with sweet onions, so I used a can of diced tomatoes with green peppers. I also used hamburger instead of Italian sausage. Next time I will try the sausage. Easy too.
