1Boil 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.
2Once the pasta is ready combine the meat sauce and pasta together.
3Preheat 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.)
4Place 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.
5Add 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.
6Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes. You can make this ahead of time, and refrigerate, it will just take longer to bake.
