Let's Make It
Heat oven to 375ºF.
Use small spoon to scoop out centers of onions, leaving 1/4-inch-thick shells; reserve removed onion pieces for later use. Cut thin slice off bottom of each onion half to allow onion to stand upright.
Place 1 of the removed onion pieces in bottom of each onion half, cutting as necessary to completely cover bottom of onion shell. Chop enough of the remaining removed onion pieces to measure 1/2 cup. Reserve any remaining onion pieces for another use.
Crumble sausage into large skillet; stir in chopped onions. Cook on medium heat 6 to 8 min. or until sausage is done, stirring frequently; drain. Return sausage mixture to skillet; stir in Parmesan, 3/4 cup pasta sauce, 1/2 cup shredded cheese and 2 Tbsp. oregano.
Place 1 onion half on center of each of 4 large sheets heavy-duty foil; fill with sausage mixture. Wrap with foil to form 4 packets.
Bake 20 min. or until onions are tender. Carefully open tops of packets. Sprinkle remaining shredded cheese over onions; bake 5 min. or until melted. Sprinkle with remaining oregano.
Serve with remaining pasta sauce.
