Pizza Pasta

Clearly, this was written last week, which just proves my exhaustion point!  I’ll go ahead and say it out loud, when Benjamin Franklin thought day light savings would be fantastic, he didn’t have kids. The result has been one very long week for kids and parents. Could I be anymore exhausted?? Being this tired means sometimes a step or two might be over looked. In this case it meant I completely over-looked the baking portion. And it has nothing to do with the teeny tiny print of the recipe, with my glasses upstairs. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!


1 cup elbow macaroni
1/2 lb 90% lean ground beef
6 fresh mushrooms, quartered
1/3 cup chopped onion
8 oz tomato sauce
3 1/2 oz sliced pepperoni
2 Tbs sliced black olives
1 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup part – skim shredded mozzarella cheese


Cook macaroni according to package directions. In large skillet, cook beef, mushrooms, and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, pepperoni, olives, sugar, Italian seasoning, and pepper.

Drain macaroni; add to meat mixture. Sprinkle with cheeses, stirring to mix.

If you choose to bake, this is what you need to do: transfer to a 1 1/2 quart baking dish coated with cooking spray, sprinkle more cheese on top. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through.

Serves 4
