Reviews for Pizza Pepperoni Pasta
"We thought this was just ok, nothing special. If I try this again I'm going to put in more fresh vegetables and use more cheese. I needed another spice too... maybe the garlic powder the other reviewer suggested. I did like the addition of Worcestershire sauce. I'll be adding that in to other recipes now too. Overall, this was a fine meal, but I doubt I'd make this again."
"My own spin meant the onion, diced tomatoes & Worcestershire were omitted & shredded cheddar stood in for mozzarella. Adding garlic powder could tweak it. Tastes great!"
"I've made this recipe a few times...The kids LOVE it! :)"
"Yummy! If you're using a 24 ounce jar of pasta sauce, just use the whole thing. No need to measure it out. Also, I topped with an 8 ounce package of shredded mozzarella cheese.~ Theresa"
"I also used spaghetti squash in here and stewed tomatoes. it is a keeper indeed!"
