"I have made this using macaroni, I brown the meat and onions like mentioned in recipe mix with spaghetti sauce, cook the macaroni and drain, then layer the meat sauce first, macaroni, pepperoni, sprinkle with cheese and keep on layering until ingredients are gone. top layer should be the pepperoni and cheese, then bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes"
