I only wish I had come across this idea sooner.
This is a dinner solution so simple I hesitate to even call it a recipe, so let’s just go ahead and call it a brilliant idea. Stuffed Italian Sausage. I mean, Italian sausage on its own is great, but when you go ahead and stuff it with melty mozzarella cheese and let it bubble away in some zesty marinara? Well, that’s a whole ‘nother level of great. (And it’s easy. Incredibly super duper easy.)
10m prep time
40m cook time
6 uncooked Italian sausage links
6 mozzarella cheese sticks
1 cup marinara sauce
Preheat oven to 400°F.
With a knife or kitchen scissors, make a slice down one side of each sausage, cutting about halfway into the sausage but not all the way through.
Place a mozzarella stick into each cut, then using your hands, gently press sausage back into shape.
Pour marinara into the bottom of a baking dish and spread out with a spoon or spatula.
Arrange sausages in the baking dish, cut side up. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 minutes more, until sausages are cooked through and cheese is bubbly and lightly golden in places. Enjoy!
