"Pizza Stuff" Baked Penne with Italian Sausage

Ryan's favorite

1 (12 oz) pkg dry penne pasta ( I use Barilla Protein Penne Pasta)
2 tsp olive oil
1 lb italian sausage
1 cup yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup white wine
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes with garlic
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
2. Bring a large pot of water to boil.  Add pasta and cook per the directions (8 to 10 minutes)
3. Heat oil in a large, deep skillet. Place sausage and onion in the skillet. Cook over med high heat until evenly brown.  Drain excess fat. Pour in wine. Cook for 1 minute, stirring to deglaze the pan. Stir in tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Toss with cooked pasta. Place in a 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle top with mozzarella. (I add it into the pasta as well)
4. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Spicy Sausage Balls
