  • 1 cup red pepper thinly sliced, approximately 2" long
  • 3/4 cup white onion chopped
  • 6 oz. mushrooms chopped
  • 4 oz spiral noodles
  • 4 oz shell noodles
  • 4 oz wheel noodles
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 48 oz. spaghetti sauce Prego is best

Instructions

  • Mise en place. Brown ground Italian sausage until 90% cooked. Drain. Press out excess grease with a paper towel if desired.
  • Add peppers, onions, and mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring often. Add sauce and spices. Bring to a slight boil. Remove from heat. Set aside.
  • Cook pastas according to package directions. Rinse in cool water. Drain. Set aside.
  • Spray a 9” x 13” casserole dish (glass is best with this recipe) with non-stick spray. Layer 1/3 of the pasta, spoon on 1/3 of sauce. Top with 1/3 of the pepperoni and then 1/3 of the cheese.
  • Repeat layers: pasta, sauce, pepperoni, cheese.
  • Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and cheese is melted. Check after 30 minutes and cover if browning too quickly.
