    KateL's Note:

    Tired of the nondescript? The Italian sausage and pepper jack cheese wake up the classic Johnny Marzetti casserole. This has zing, but it is not super spicy. Use your ground venison, no one will ever know it's not regular ground beef. Just what the Hunter ordered: a manly casserole.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place the farfalle (aka bow ties) into the pot, cook 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
    2. 2
      Peel Italian sausage and simmer in 24 ounces of beer for 10 minutes or until cooked through. Drain. Slice into 1/8" slices.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
    4. 4
      Lightly grease 11 x 7 x 2-inch baking dish (or 8x8-inch pan) and set aside.
    5. 5
      Heat olive oil in a very large heavy skillet over moderate heat 1 minute.
    6. 6
      Add onion and garlic. Stir-fry until limp, about 3 minutes.
    7. 7
      Add mushrooms and stir-fry until juices are released and evaporate, about 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Add beef and cook and stir, breaking up clumps, until no longer red, about 5 minutes.
    9. 9
      I usually drain the beef mixture in a fine mesh colander due to the volume of high water content onions and mushrooms.
    10. 10
      Off heat, mix in tomato sauce, Italian sausage slices and all but 1 cup cheese.
    11. 11
      Transfer to baking dish, add bow ties, and toss gently but thoroughly to mix.
    12. 12
      Scatter remaining 1 cup cheese on top. (Add grated parmesan cheese if more is needed.).
    13. 13
      Bake, uncovered, until browned and bubbling, 35-40 minutes, and serve.

      This is a very good marzetti. I followed the ingredients per recipe except the cheese. I didn't have any pepper jack so used sharp cheddar. This was not moist enough for our family. This has a very good taste just needs more moisture. This did not fit in a 7x11 pan I had to put it in a 9x13 pan. Made for PRMR.
