There’s not much better than some good old homemade macaroni. But, how can we make it better?? Top it with Italian Pizza toppings.
500 grams Macaroni Noodles
400 grams Whole Peeled Tomatoes
1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
1 teaspoon Paprika
1 teaspoon Salt
a dash of Pepper
1/2 a very small Onion, diced
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1/2 a Recipe of Homemade Italian Sausage
2 balls (about 400 grams total) of wet Mozzarella Cheese
Preheat oven to 200Â°C (392Â°F).
In a sauce pan heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and saute the onion in it. Then, add the whole tomatoes – break them up with a spatula – as well as the tomato paste, paprika, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Adjust the flavors as you see fit.
In the mean while, prepare the Italian sausage according to the recipe and cook the macaroni according to package directions. Drain the macaroni and set aside.
One the sauce is done, mix in the macaroni and then pour it into a casserole dish. Top it with Italian sausage and cheese.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and started to golden.
Makes 4-6 servings.
