1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
2 Cook the penne according to package directions omitting the salt, if desired. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

Add the onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 15 minutes. Stir in the oregano. 4 Add the turkey mixture to the penne; mix well. Stir in the ricotta and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella; transfer to the baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella. Bake until heated through and lightly browned, about 25 minutes.
