Reviews for Pizza Pepperoni Pasta
"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 substituted elbow macaroni, added 4 tsp of sugar to the sauce, and squeezed italian turkey sausage (brat style) out of its casing (in place of plain ground turkey). It's nice that the recipe makes a large amount, because we just can't get enough of it!"
"This is so good & so quick/easy. My picky husband loved it and has requested it several times since."
"I also used spaghetti squash in here and stewed tomatoes. it is a keeper indeed!"
