Baked Pasta and Sausage

1 pound rotini or penne pasta
3/4 pound italian sausage
2 sweet red peppers (I use the precut peppers, already packed in jars)
1 large onion
1 TBSP. olive oil
1 jar marinara sauce
2 cups Italian blend cheese

Heat oven to 450 degrees.  Cook pasta according to package.  Drain.

While pasta is cooking, cut sausage into 1/2 inch slices.  chop onions and add to peppers, to make a total of 4 cups.  Heat olive oil in large skillet and add sausage, peppers and onions.  Cook 10 minutes or until onions are tender and sausage is cooked through.  Add sausage and bring to simmer.  Stir in drained pasta and 1 C of the cheese.

Pour mixture into casserole dish, sprinkle remaining cheese over mixture.  Bake for 8 minutes or until cheese starts to bubble.
