Pizza Pasta

Sorry for the lack of posting lately. We close on our new house in 2 weeks so things have been busy. I hope to be back to normal postings by mid-November.
This recipe came from allrecipes.com. It was so quick and easy and the whole family enjoyed it. I do think a sauce makes or breaks a dish so don't use cheap sauce. I found the "mini" pepperoni at the store this week and thought they worked perfectly for this dish.

  • 2 cups uncooked egg noodles (I used rotini)
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup sliced pepperoni sausage
  • 16 ounces pizza sauce
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • (I also added black olives)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cook noodles according to package directions.
  3. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef with the onion, garlic and green bell pepper. Drain excess fat. Stir in the noodles, pepperoni, (olives), pizza sauce and milk, and mix well. Pour this mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 minutes, top with the cheese, then bake for 5 to 10 more minutes.
