This is the exact recipe I used to make when I worked at Pizza Hut in High school. Don't ask when that was! This is great served in individual pasta dishes, but a casserole dish is fine.
|1||large green bell pepper, diced|
|1||large onion, diced|
|2||ounces (½ stick) margarine|
|1||teaspoon garlic powder|
|1||pound assorted pasta (wheels, shells, spirals, ziti)|
|½||pound pepperoni. sliced thin then cut in half|
|8||ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded|
|½||pound hamburger, browned|
|½||pound Italian sausage, browned|
|1||(16 ounce) jar meat flavored sauce|
Melt margarine over medium high heat in a skillet. Add onions, peppers, and garlic powder. Sauté for about 4 minutes. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to box directions. Heat sauce and combine with cooked hamburger and cooked sausage. Use cooking spray to lightly grease a 13 x 11-inch casserole dish or your individual pasta dishes. Place 1/2 of the cooked pasta in the dishes, followed by 1/2 the vegetables, 1/2 of the pepperoni and 1/2 sauce. Repeat another layer. Spread mozzarella cheese over top. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 minutes or until cheese is melted.
