Prep:

25 Min

Cook:

40 Min

Ingredients

1 lb
ground beef or Turkey
1 jar(s)
Favorite pasta sauce
1 box
rotini pasta (you can use any bite size pasta)
4 c
Mozzerella Cheese
1 pkg
pepperoni

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Boil pasta according to direction, but only for 6 1/2 minutes, still firm. While the pasta is cooking brown ground beef or turkey, then add your pasta sauce.
2
Once the pasta is ready combine the meat sauce and pasta together.
3
Preheat your over to 350, and spray a 9x14 glass baking dish with cooking spray. (You could also split this recipe into TWO 8x8 dishes and freeze one, just thaw to cook it.)
4
Place half of the pasta in the bottom, layer with pepperoni (I put them side by side and cover it). Then put 2 cups of mozzerella.
5
Add the remaining pasta, then 2 cups of mozzarella, then place pepperoni on top. I used to place the pepperoni UNDER the cheese, but liked the crispy pepperoni on the top better. You can do either way you like.
6
Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes. You can make this ahead of time, and refrigerate, it will just take longer to bake.
