Pepperoni Macaroni Recipe

Pepperoni Macaroni Recipe

An everyday pasta bake gets jazzed up with pepperoni, sausage and olives. Because it can be assembled ahead of time and baked right before serving, it’s my handy go-to when I need something on the fly. —Marlene Mohr, Cincinnati, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2-1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 package (3-1/2 ounces) sliced pepperoni, halved
  • 1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • 1. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Drain macaroni.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the pizza sauce, tomato sauce and milk. Stir in sausage mixture, macaroni, pepperoni, mushrooms and olives.

"Delicious. I used spicy sausage which was good, and little mini pepperonis so I didn't have to dice them up. I also added spinach, and looked hard for high fructose free pizza sauce (dietary thing), and it was delicious. I also forgot the milk so it wasn't as bound as it might have been with the milk. Next time Milk."

"This has always been a favorite of mine. I usually add spicy pepperoni to give it a little more flavor. Think spicy sausage would be good too"
