"Very tasty and simple. I used just one pkg of turkey pepperoni and ground chicken, omitting the mushrooms since my husband doesn't like them,"

"My mother was the first to serve this to our family and I am so glad she did! It's been a favorite for years. Very surprised more have not tried this, since its easy to fix, relatively healthy and has a great flavor. I usually use a combo of 8 oz lean ground beef and turkey pepperoni."
