Baked Italian Sausage Rotini is a savory, cheesy, and a little spicy. It is an easy dinner and can be frozen and reheated later.
This Italian Sausage Rotini is a husband favorite (our kids love it too)! It a little spicy and really cheesey and just yummy, there usually isn’t any left. And I love it because it is so easy to throw together and pop in the oven. If there are any leftovers, this reheats really well for lunches. I have also done this as a freezer meal before, just freeze it and then thaw it out before baking. I have taken this over as a meal for neighbors too, but I usually leave out the red pepper flakes if I am giving it to other people! We like it spicy but I know some people aren’t a fan of the heat! I realize it’s called an italian sausage rotini bake but we like mixing it up with the noodles, we do either rotini, bowtie, or wagon wheel noodles, all three are good!

In a large bowl toss together the sausage with all the other ingredients reserving 1 cup of cheese.
Pour pasta mixture into a 9x13 inch pan lined with cooking spray. Bake at 375 for 25 min. Top with remaining cheese and bake 5 more minutes.
