"I made this tonight, and really liked it! I sauteed the vegetables prior to mixing them with the pasta mixture, and added 1/2 cup of chicken broth instead of 1/4 cup, as it seemed a bit dry. Although I like pepperoni, there was a bit too much for my taste, so I'll probably only use about 1/3 cup next time. I'll definitely make this again."

"I used the mini ziti pasta shells, the mini pepperoni slices and half a jar of sliced mushrooms instead of fresh. I also used fat free half-and-half and added another cup of shredded mozzarella on top of the casserole mixed with the parmesan cheese. It was perfect!"

"Really good, but I plan to change a couple of things the next time - it just says "chopped pepperoni" - I chopped it too small - think it would be better with bigger chunks. Also swap out the green peppers with roasted red peppers & will maybe add some chicken for a little extra substance."
