Baked Fusilli

I love making a dish that can be made ahead and then baked while the cook can sit with a glass of
wine before dinner. How civilized!

1/2 bag whole wheat fusilli pasta
1 jar favorite spaghetti sauce ( I used Trader Joe's Roasted Garlic)
1 pkg baby bella mushrooms, washed and chopped
1 large green pepper chopped
1/2 medium onion chopped
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1 cup shredded parmesan
salt, pepper, oregano, dried red pepper

Cook pasta according to directions choosing less cooking time since you will be baking it also.
In large skillet, sauté onion green pepper and mushrooms in olive oil. Add spices and jar of sauce. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add drained pasta and and mozzarella and stir well. Turn into casserole dish and top with parmesan. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 400. Allow to sit for ten minutes before cutting. Good with green salad and hot rolls.
