Here's my homemade version of a family-favorite Italian restaurant entree. For a change of pace, I substitute hamburger for pepperoni, add Italian seasonings and use a mix of fun pasta shapes including rotini and corkscrew.

"I made this the other night for dinner. My husband really enjoyed the pepperoni in a dish other than on pizza. I added a few fresh herbs and used our own homemade pizza sauce (instead of the jared sauce, tomato pasta and canned sauce). I also used whole wheat pasta and reduced fat cheeses to lightly up the dish. As an additional bonus for flavor I added 3 cloves of garlic and fresh button mushrooms. While the pasta cooked I sautéed up the green peppers, garlic, and mushrooms."
