This is definitely one of my new favorite pasta dishes - my husband gobbled it up. When I mentioned it was basically baked spaghetti with pepperoni on top, he dismissed it. He is not a fan of baked spaghetti - which is honestly a mystery to me. I don't know. Anyways, he liked this a lot. The kids liked it a lot. I thought it was one of the best baked spaghetti-esque recipes I've had, so it's a keeper!
What you need:
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1/2 large onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 jar spaghetti sauce
- 8 oz. rotini pasta
- 2 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
- Sliced pepperoni
Add pasta, spaghetti sauce and 2 cups cheese and stir.
Pour into a lightly greased 8x8-inch square baking dish.
Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and enough pepperoni to cover the top.
Bake at 350* for 25 to 30 minutes.
