Ingredients

1 box
16 oz. ziti pasta
1 jar(s)
prego spaghetti sauce
1 lb
ground chuck - fried & drained
1 large
onion or onion flakes (dice onion in small pieces)
oregano, garlic, basil, salt & pepper to taste
1/2 bag(s)
diced/chopped pepperoni or mini peperoni slices
3 c
shredded mozzarella cheese (or to your taste)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook ziti till almost done. Drain.

Use Prego spaghetti sauce – any variety you like.
Add cooked ground chuck, spices and diced up pepperoni to sauce ingredients.
3
Layer cooked ziti, mozzarella cheese and spaghetti sauce in a baking dish or crock pot. Bake in oven at 400 degrees until cheese is melted – or put in a crockpot on low setting till cheese melts. If you use a crockpot on high heat, watch carefully so it doesn’t stick and/or burn.
