Pizza-Flavored Pasta Sauce Recipe

I’ve been cooking since I was 6 years old and I’m always watching for recipes my friends and family will love. So when I tasted an unforgettable spaghetti sauce at a local restaurant, I just had to make my own version. —Angelina Falzarano, Midlothian, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:9 servings


  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 packages (3-1/2 ounces each) sliced pepperoni
  • 3/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 7 cups meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • Hot cooked pasta


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook sausage, mushrooms, pepperoni, pepper and onion over medium heat until sausage is no longer pink, breaking up sausage into crumbles; drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce, olives and Italian seasoning.
  • 2. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10-12 minutes or until heated through. Serve over pasta.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled sauce in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally. Yield: 9 servings (2-1/4 quarts).
