This meal hits all the right notes for authentic Italian cuisine: a delicious selection of cheeses, a bold sauce and a hearty helping of pasta. Using Johnsonville® Mild Italian Sausage gives this meal a nice addition of perfectly seasoned pork, and Classico's Tomato and Basil Sauce is a great time-saver for a fantastic sauce.
