Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a large casserole dish with cooking spray.
Cook pasta al dente according to package directions, drain and set aside. If you are making the pasta ahead of time, toss with 2 teaspoons olive oil to prevent sticking and drying out.
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, egg, garlic powder, onion powder, fine sea salt, black pepper and parmesan cheese.
In a large mixing bowl, toss together cooked pasta, ricotta mixture, onion, garlic, marinara sauce, 1 cup mozzarella cheese and cooked sausage. When combined, pour into prepared casserole dish.
Top with remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese.
Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until top cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove and serve hot or wait until fully cooled before covering and refrigerating or freezing.
