Reviews for Pepperoni Macaroni
"Delicious. I used spicy sausage which was good, and little mini pepperonis so I didn't have to dice them up. I also added spinach, and looked hard for high fructose free pizza sauce (dietary thing), and it was delicious. I also forgot the milk so it wasn't as bound as it might have been with the milk. Next time Milk."
"This has always been a favorite of mine. I usually add spicy pepperoni to give it a little more flavor. Think spicy sausage would be good too"
"used what was on hand and that was not per recipe. had no mushrooms or tomato sauce. skipped the mushrooms but used extra milk and tomato paste. had pork sausage, but no italian so added oregano and garlic powder. went 4 cups of macaroni and 3 cups of mozz. so i added 10 minutes to cook covered time and went the 15 on the uncovered time. from the few bites i have had we are enjoying it and will make again."
