Spicy Sausage Pasta Bake

“Toss and bake – that’s what I call this pasta dish. It’s the perfect way to prepare pasta when you’re taking it to a dinner party or on not serving it immediately. I used jerk-pork sausage with a blend of cream and tomato sauces then topped it off with a handful of cheese for a crispy and cheesy top.” – Chef Noel Cunningham, Cuisine by Noel
