Pepperoni Pasta Bake Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:6 servings


  • 3 cups uncooked wagon wheel or spiral pasta
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, undrained
  • 1 package (3-1/2 ounces) sliced pepperoni, quartered
  • 3/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 jar (14 ounces) spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and place in a large bowl. Add mushrooms, pepperoni, green pepper and onion. Stir in spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce, tomato paste and cheddar cheese.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased 3-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake 50 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: 6 servings.

"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."
