Pizza Pasta

This recipe from Lemons and Love was a nice twist to our usual spaghetti meal. I tweaked it just a tiny bit from the original recipe and you can add any other pizza topping you can think of!

16 oz pasta, cooked and drained (we used angel hair but I think rotini would work better)
2 jars of spaghetti sauce (I used about 1 and 3/4)
1. 25 lbs of ground turkey (we used lean ground beef)
2 cups chopped pepperoni
2 cups Italian mix shredded cheese, divided
1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
garlic powder
Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 350. Season ground beef/turkey with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Cook until browned, draining fat if necessary. Add in spaghetti sauce and pepperoni. Simmer.

In a 9x13 baking dish, layer half of the pasta mixture. Top with 1.25 cups Italian mix shredded cheese. Layer the rest of the pasta mixture on top and finish with 3/4 cup Italian mix shredded cheese and 1 cup of Parmesan cheese.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted. Enjoy!

I added the pepperoni to the ground beef while it was cooking to make it crispy. We also added onions to ours.
