By , May 18, 2009 at 9:16 am

1 (12 ounce) package dry penne pasta
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pound mild Italian sausage
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chicken stock
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with garlic
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup pepper jack cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

Put sausage and onion in skillet and cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain excess fat. Pour in chicken stock, and cook for 1 minute, stirring, to deglaze the pan. Stir in tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, basil, garlic and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Toss with cooked pasta, and place in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle top with pepper jack cheese and then mozzarella on top.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
