- Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.
- Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink; drain. Add cooking sauce, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and the cooked pasta; stir well.
- In small bowl, mix ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese and egg.
- Spoon pasta mixture into ungreased 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish. Spoon ricotta cheese mixture on top; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Spray sheet of foil with cooking spray; cover baking dish with foil, sprayed side down.
- Bake 25 to 30 minutes, removing foil last 10 minutes of bake time, until cheese melts and mixture is hot and bubbly. Sprinkle with basil.
- *Instead of ricotta cheese, you can substitute 3/4 cup cottage cheese and increase Parmesan cheese to 1/2 cup.
- For extra-easy cleanup, line the casserole with foil.
- For even more flavor, try using hot Italian pork sausage.
