This is way too much food for hubby and me so we will have left-overs for days!!! If our daughter and her family comes by, they are more than welcome to take some home ... Their daughters will probably love it.
I saw this recipe on the Southernplate website and had to give it a try. It was simple, only took a few ingredients, and is very tasty. Quicker than trying to make a pizza because I didn't have to deal with making pizza dough although making Pizza dough in my Zojirushi bread maker will be a project that I plan to tackle later this week. Here's the Recipe:
2 pounds ground beef, browned and drained (I used ground turkey)
1 box penne pasta
2 jars pizza sauce
1/2 an onion (add to the meat while browning)
1 tsp garlic powder*
2 cups mozzarella cheese (or more)
1 pack of slice pepperoni
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Prepare pasta according to package direction. Drain water and set aside. Mix pasta, sauces, hamburger and 1 cup of the pepperoni together and put into a lightly greased 9" x 13" baking pan.
Put more pepperoni on top, if desired, or just stir it all in.
Cover with cheese cheese is melted and bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling.
