PIZZA STYLE PASTA
This is my original recipe, adapted from a magazine recipe, years ago.
Its great with salad and easy to make quickly. Perfect for Monday night.
1 pkg. Pasta, ziti, penne, rigatoni, spirals, etc.
8 oz mozzarella or provolone, shredded
1/4 pound pepperoni, sliced or sliced and quartered
1/2 jar sliced green olives
1/2 can sliced black olives
1 small jar spaghetti sauce, use any that you like, or homemade,
1 1/2- 2 cups
1/4 cup Parmesan or Romano cheese
Cook pasta. Drain and return to pot. Add sauce and other ingredients, heat a few minutes until cheese melts. For variety I have added sauteed mushrooms, roasted red peppers, sauteed onions, cooked sausage or 1/2 cup ricotta and 1/2 cup drained, chopped spinach and some garlic.
