Cheese Italian Sausage and Pasta

 I made the  cheese Italian sausage  and pasta recipe that I found at sargento website  with my  personal twist to it.  I followed their  procedure but used   different kinds of pasta and cheese.  I also used my home made sauce.  We ate it with  store-bought  garlic bread.  It was yummy.  
Cheese Italian Sausage & Pasta

1 lb. mild or hot Italian sausage
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 each large red and green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 can (14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes or Italian-style tomatoes, undrained
1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
8 oz. ziti or mostaccioli pasta, cooked and drained
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 cups (8 oz.) Sargento® Chef Blends™ Shredded 6 Cheese Italian, divided

Cut sausage into 1/2-inch pieces; discard casings. Cook sausage in large skillet over medium heat 5 minutes or until browned on all sides. Pour off drippings. Add onion, garlic and bell peppers; cook 5 minutes or until sausage is cooked through and vegetables are crisp-tender.
Add tomatoes and tomato paste; mix well. Stir in pasta, basil and 1 cup cheese. Transfer to 13x9-inch baking dish. Cover and bake in preheated 375°F oven 20 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Continue to bake 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
