Zane’s Pepperoni Pasta Delight is Yummy Delicious [RECIPE]
If you love pizza and pasta, you're going to love my Pepperoni Pasta Delight!
I'm sure there is a hundred thousand variations of this out there, but this is what I came up with - and I think this is a big-time winner. It's all the goodness of pizza without the crust, and all the deliciousness of spaghetti without as much pasta.
Here's what you will need:
*1 lb Ground Beef
*1 lb Italian Sausage(hot or mild)
*1 package pepperoni
*1 box medium pasta shells
*1 16 oz package shredded mozzarella cheese
*1 16 oz package shredded cheddar cheese
* 67 oz jar Prego Traditional Spaghetti Sauce
(You could add other ingredients like onions, mushrooms, and green peppers, but I advise against it. This one is for meat and cheese lovers! If you want less cheese, use the 8 oz package)
Cook the pasta shells according to directions, being careful not to over cook them.( You will be glad about this when you start having leftovers.)Brown the ground beef and sausage separately. Cover the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 glass dish with the ground beef. Next, spread a layer of pepperoni on top of the ground beef, and then a layer of cheddar cheese. (You probably won't use the entire package)
Next, spoon in enough pasta shells to cover the cheese and meat. (Probably 2/3 of the cooked shells) Pour about 2/3 of the Prego sauce to cover the pasta, and use your spoon to help it ooze down into the other layers. Next, spread out the sausage over the top, and then cover the sausage with another layer of pepperoni. Finally, add a layer of mozzarella cheese. (As much or as little as you want, or as much as the dish will hold. It's gonna be full!)
Bake covered with foil for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. Uncover and bake for another 10 minutes. Serve with garlic bread or bread sticks. This will easily feed a family of four, or for just two people you can easily get three meals out to this.
