Baked Penne w/Ricotta

Baked Penne w/Ricotta
After all the turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy and stuffing that I have been trying to get out of my refrigerator I thought it would be nice to have some "Italian" comfort food for dinner. I was craving pasta with a meat sauce and contemplated making lasagna but I thought that was a bit fussy for a week night. I thought of spaghetti, but I really wanted something a bit sexier. I had made a Ragu that had a pound of Italian sausage and I decided to toss it with a pound of penne then dot with some fresh ricotta and then top with some grated mozzarella.
Bon Appetit

That looks really good Norm - the ricotta idea is just so much easier than making bechamel!
