Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a nonstick pan over medium heat add sausage and stir and cook until done. Drain sausage and add to a very large bowl. Add drained pasta, egg, and seasonings. Reserve ¼ cup of pasta sauce and add the rest to the bowl.
Reserve 3 Tablespoons of mozzarella cheese and add the rest of the mozzarella cheese to the bowl. Mix really well. Pour mixture into 8×8 baking dish. Smooth the mixture out with back of a spoon.
