good quality prepared all-tomato or tomato-and-meat sauce.

2 cups Tomato Sauce,
Bolognese Style.

sausage, removed from
casings and crumbled
8 ounces hot Italian sausage,
removed from casings
and crumbled
1 large onion, halved
engthwise, and cut into
thin vertical slices
2 red bell peppers, cut into 1/2 in. strips

2 green bell peppers, cut into 1/2 in. strip

2 yellow bell peppers, cut into 1/2in. strips

3 garlic cloves, cut into thin

minutes. Stir in parsley and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

water until ready to use.

1/2 cup of the tomato sauce on the bottom of the dish. Lift the noodles from the water individually and blot dry with paper toweling. Arrange a single
layer of four slightly overlapping noodles. Top with half the sausage mixture, sprinkle with 1 cup of the mozzarella and 1 tablespoon of the Parme-
5. Cover the sausage mixture with a single layer of 4 more slightly overlap-
