Homemade Baked Ziti

This is actually one of my most requested meals. I've made it for people over the years and they enjoy it. Tonight, I made it for our family for my birthday (soon) and my sister-in-law's (just passed). I ate it. So good.

1 green pepper
1 yellow onion
olive oil
1 pkg mild italian sausage
1 box penne or ziti
1 large jar of super chunky mushroom spaghetti sauce
chardonnay (optional)
10 oz 1/2 inch cube mozz cheese
8 oz pkg italian cheese blend shredded
Chop pepper and onions, saute in olive oil. Take out of pan. Crumble and cook sausage till mostly done. Add back in the veggies and sauce and wine if you are using it. Simmer.
Cook pasta till al dente. Drain.
Mix all together and add in the cubed cheese.
Pour in a 9x13 pan and sprinkle the italian cheese over the top.
Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes at 425 until the top cheese is slightly browned.
Enjoy with salad and garlic bread.
