Now a good knife is a must have in any kitchen! I picked up this Aicok Knife (HERE) for under $10, but it’s keeps going out of stock often on Amazon due to how awesome it is. There are a lot of other top rated knives on Amazon at a great price. I am not the best at picking out Knives so when I can read reviews to find a good quality knife it’s a win for me.

How To Make Cheesy Italian Sausage Pasta Bake:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 by 13 pan with a non-stick spray.
Prepare your box of rotini pasta by starting it to boil in a pot, and slice up your Italian sausage.
Once the pasta is done strain the pasta in a strainer and using the same pot put in your olive oil and minced garlic saute on low heat for a couple of minutes.
Add in your Italian sausage let this saute for a couple of minutes and be sure to salt and pepper to taste, with a pinch of Italian seasoning as well.
Pour your sauce into the mixture and mix well.
Next, stir in your pasta and then pour this pasta combination into your 9 by 13 baking pan
Spray 9X13 pan with nonstick spray (I prefer to use my homemade nonstick spray-> here) My mom is all about her metal pans but I am all about the Pyrex glass pans! I think everything comes out so much better. I have the one pictured and love it, the handles make it great for removing from the oven if you are clumsy like me!! Plus you can order one on Amazon so you don’t even have to leave the house, order, and then the UPS man is at the door when you use Amazon Prime 2 day delivery! (Don’t have Prime? You NEED for easy online shopping!!)
In a small bowl combine together your Panko bread crumbs and your parmesan cheese.
Top with mozzarella cheese and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes until your cheese is melted remove and enjoy!!
