Lisa's tex mex pasta

From my friend Lisa Robinson.

3 Italian sausages (mild or hot)
700 mL jar pasta sauce (I use Classico Italian sausage, peppers and onions)
1/2 cup salsa
1 1/2 cups uncooked fusilli pasta
approx 3/4 cups grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Boil water for pasta and cook about 10 min. Meanwhile remove sausage from casing, break up and brown. Add pasta sauce and salsa to sausage, bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover and cook 10 min. ( I usually time it so the pasta sauce is simmering while the pasta is cooking). After 10 minutes, drain the pasta, add it to the pasta sauce, and pour into a greased 11 x 7 dish. Top with cheese, cover with tin foil sprayed with Pam, and cook for 1/2 hour. Serve with garlic bread. Quick and delicious!
