  • 1Cook ziti till almost done. Drain.
  • 2Use Prego spaghetti sauce – any variety you like.
    Add cooked ground chuck, spices and diced up pepperoni to sauce ingredients.
  • 3Layer 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.
