Here I go again...another quick and easy meal. 
Sometimes they are the best kind. 

This recipe is another one of those 
"ok, this is what I've got to work with. What can I make?"  
kind of recipes. 
I'm sure most of you can relate.
And I'm sure most of you have already made something like this. 
Since my family loves this dish so much, 
I thought I'd share it with you too!

Pepperoni - Rotini

1 lb ground beef
1/2 tsp hamburger seasoning
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
7 oz pkg pepperoni slices
24 oz jar (or 2 1/2 cups) of your favorite spaghetti sauce
(this time I used Ragu Garden Combination)
 2 tsp Italian Seasoning
8 oz Rotini pasta
( I could only find a 16oz, so I used half of that) 
 8 oz pkg shredded Cheddar Jack cheese 

Cook pasta according to directions on package, drain.
Over medium heat, brown ground beef, peppers and onions. Cook until onions are clear and peppers are tender. Drain.
Add hamburger seasoning. Stir.
Add pepperoni, sauce and Italian seasoning. Stir.
Cook until sauce and pepperoni's are heated, stirring occasionally.
 Add pasta and mix together until all is combined. 

Pour in to a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Cover with cheese.
Bake on 350* until cheese is melted.




  1. I make a recipe almost just like this... but its called Pizza In A Bowl, got it out of a cook book years ago. Its a family favorite

    1. I have found that there are so many different variations and names to this dish. Since I started making it, I've found the most common is Pizza Pasta. As long as it all taste good, right? :-)
      I'd love to try your recipe too!

  2. I copied this one too. Love the idea of pepperoni!!


Thank you for stopping by! Come back soon!
