  • While sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

  • Stir the cooked pasta into the sauce. Stir in 1 cup of the shredded mozzarella. Pour all into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Top with the remaining mozzarella, sliced olives and bell pepper.
