  • 1
    Heat oven to 350ºF.

  • 3
    While pasta is cooking; cook sausage in 10-inch skillet over medium-heat, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink; drain. Mix pasta, sausage and remaining ingredients except cheese in ungreased 2 1/2-quart casserole.

Expert Tips

  • Special Touch: Just for fun, make six smiley faces on the top with sliced pimiento-stuffed olives for the eyes and thin strips of green bell pepper for the smiles.
  • Tip: Bulk pork sausage is the raw meat that hasn't been stuffed in the casing.  If you can't find it you can buy raw sausages, slit the casing with a knife and remove the meat.
  • Variation: Dress up this casserole when you replace the wagon wheels with an equal amount of rotini, rotelle, penne or farfalle pasta.
  • Substitution: Hamburger pizza more your style? Use lean ground beef instead of Italian sausage.
