This weekend for fight night I made Pizza Pasta!  I'd seen it a few different places & finally decided to make it.

I browned some ground turkey, onions, italian seasoning, garlic, and red pepper flakes..
then mixed that with mozzerella cheese, pasta sauce, and cooked pasta..
spread all of that into a casserole pan, covered it with more cheese, then pepperoni.  After cooking it we devoured it & I decided i WILL be making that again!


1 lb ground lean turkey sausage
1 medium onion , chopped
1 clove garlic , minced
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 (26 ounce) jars spaghetti sauce
8 ounces rotini pasta , cooked and drained
2 cups shredded reduced fat mozzarella cheese (20 oz)
32 slices of turkey pepperoni
1.  Brown ground beef, onion, garlic and seasoning in oil.
2 .Drain.
3.  Stir in pasta, spaghetti sauce and 2 cups cheese.
4. Place mixture in 2 greased 9x13x2 inch baking pans or 4 square pans.
