Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Preptime   40 minutes

14 ounces uncooked ziti or mostaccioli
12 ounces ground turkey breast
8 ounces sweet turkey Italian sausage, casings removed
Cooking spray
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
6 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup red wine
5 cups lower-sodium marinara sauce (such as McCutcheon's)
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
6 ounces whole-milk mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
2 ounces grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, divided (about 1/2 cup packed)
2 tablespoons small basil leaves or torn basil

Preheat oven to 350. Cook pasta according to the package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain and set aside.
Place turkey and sausage in a medium bowl, and mix well with hands to combine. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add turkey mixture to pan; cook 8 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Remove from pan.
Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion and pepper; saute 4 minutes. Add garlic; saute for 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Add wine, scraping the pan to loosen browned bits, and cook for 4 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Stir in pasta, turkey mixture, marinara sauce, and 1/2 cup basil. Spoon mixture into a 13 by 9 inch glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmigiano Reggiano. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until bubbly and cheese melts and begins to brown.
