  • 2 cups thinly sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup thinly sliced green bell pepper
  • 1 cup thinly sliced yellow bell pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 6 ounces block-style fat-free cream cheese, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) preshredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.

  4. Cook sausage links according to package directions. Reserve 4 links for Sandwiches. Chop remaining 4 links.
  5. Spread 3/4 cup pasta sauce in the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 2 noodles over pasta sauce. Sprinkle half of the cream cheese over the noodles; top with 1/4 cup Parmesan, 1 cup onion-pepper mixture, and half of the chopped sausage. Repeat layers, ending with sausage.
