Mostaccioli with Sausage

1 lb Italian sausage rope (we used polish sausage)
1 c water
1 green pepper, sliced (I used frozen veggie mix)
1 med onion, sliced (I used frozen veggie mix)
1 box mostaccioli noodles (we used penne)
2 cans spaghetti sauce
1 lb Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top

Boil pot of water for cooking the noodles. Brown sausage, peppers, and onion in a different large pot. Stir in sauce and water on top of mixture and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 min. Cook noodles al dente and drain. Spread 1/2 of meat sauce into 9x13 pan. Top with 1/2 of cooked noodles and cover with 1/2 of the cheeses. Repeat another layer of each. (Cover and label for freezer meals from here) OR bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Freezer Meal Cooking: Thaw in fridge completely. Bake covered for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 20 minutes until hot and bubbly and cheese has melted on top.

Ok we made a few modification to this recipe.  We used a frozen mixed veggie mix (carrots, peas, corn, green beans) and used polish sausage instead of italian (plans for the leftover polish sausage).  This looked (and tasted very good and hearty), by adding the mixed veggies it becomes a dish meal.
