Pizza Spaghetti


Shortest....post....ever!  This one is for Zack!  To celebrate his great report card, I offered to make a special meal of his choosing.  Zack saw a picture of Pizza Spaghetti on Twitter and went searching the web looking for a recipe.  This super easy recipe popped up on myrecipes.com and was originally from Southern Living.


Very cute and fun dish to make with the kids! My youngest, who hates spaghetti, ate two helpings and declared that spaghetti with pepperoni was just awesome!!

Pizza Spaghetti adapted from myrecipes.com
serves 8

12 ounces uncooked spaghetti
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 lb Italian sausage
2 ounces turkey pepperoni, sliced in 1/2
1 (26-oz.) jar tomato-and-basil pasta sauce or your favorite homemade sauce
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 (8-oz.) package shredded Italian three-cheese blend

Cook spaghetti with 1/2 tsp. salt according to package directions. Drain well, and place in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish (can also 1/2 the recipe and cook in a round 9" baking dish).

Brown sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain and set aside. Wipe skillet clean. Add pepperoni, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 4 minutes or until slightly crisp.

Top spaghetti in baking dish with sausage; pour pasta sauce over sausage. Arrange half of pepperoni slices evenly over pasta sauce. Sprinkle evenly with cheeses. Arrange remaining half of pepperoni slices evenly over cheese. 

Bake at 350° for 30- 40 minutes or until cheese is melted and just begins to brown.

  7. Oh my good god Becky. You've been busy! THIS LOOKS AMAZING.

    I want it. SO BAD.

    That ice-cream cake also looks amazing. I'm probably actually drooling. I'm away to draft an e-mail to you now. It's good to be back! Still got to sort out a guest post for you. I'm thinking something savoury and cheesy and delicious and maybe a little bit british.
