This was even tastier the next day. In the future I will prep the day before. I cooked chopped onion with the sausage. Next time I think I will use hamburger and elbow macaroni instead and cut the pepperoni (used turkey pepperoni) in half or quarters. Added a little more of the cheese on the top. If all goes well, the rating may be increased. It is a very heavy/hearty meal. For left overs, pasta water was saved to mix in to loosen it up for reheating.
