Introduction

A really fun dinner, hearty and filling. A really fun dinner, hearty and filling.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1/2 pound ground beef or sausage
    1/2 onion, chopped
    1 recipe for my easy marinara sauce (you can use jarred sauce)
    1 box whole wheat spiral pasta cooked and drained, reserving about 3/4 cups starchy liquid
    1 1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
    1 serving turkey pepperoni
    1 cup green pepper strips



Directions

Cook pasta according to package directions, reserving 3/4 cup cooking liquid to thin the sauce, if desired.
Meanwhile, cook the beef until no longer pink. Drain and set aside.
Cook the onion in the same skillet, until tender. Add ground beef back to skillet. Stir in marinara sauce and pasta. Transfer to a greased 13x9x2" baking dish. Sprinkle with the cheese.
Arrange pepperoni, peppers, and additional pizza toppings over the top. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

    Overall very easy and fast weeknight supper! Next time I would add some mushrooms, olives, onions, etc. to give it more variety and flavor. - 3/20/11

    Oh my word, this was just YUM!! Used turkey pepperoni, ground turkey, whole wheat rotini with Prego meat spaghetti sauce. Recipie divides nicely into 6 portions. 8 is a bit small without some kind of side dish. - 4/15/09

    I double the recipe and put into two 9x13 pans and instead of baking, I freeze them for later. To serve: I take out of the freezer the night before to thaw in the refridgerator. Then bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until heated through! - 7/29/09

    This is my second time making this. To bring down the calorie count for me, I put some of the dish in a 8x8 baking dish and the rest in a 9x13 dish. The 8x8 dish is mine as it only has a small portion of the ingredients: 1 cup cheese, 30g pepperoni, 4-8 ozs of meat and only some of the pasta. - 1/28/12

    Very easy to make! Made some substitutions with ingredients that I typically use (ground turkey, fat free cheese, turkey pepperoni, etc.) and got it down to about 205 calories / 4.5 fat per serving (12 servings in total). It was delicious, thank you for the wonderful idea! - 8/24/10
