Pizza Pasta Skillet


This dish combines two of my favorite foods - pizza and pasta.  We absolutely LOVED this!  I think it was the fresh mozzarella that really put this over the top for us.  I wanted to eat the entire skillet of pasta myself.

This is surprisingly simple to make.  It uses a jar of pasta sauce.  Everything is cooked in the skillet and the cheese and pepperoni are browned under the broiler.  This pasta can be customized to your family's tastes.  I used sausage, mushrooms and mini pepperoni.  Add your favorite pizza toppings to the pasta - ham, olives, peppers, onions.  This makes a ton.  Fortunately, it is great reheated the next day.  This is definitely going into the regular dinner rotation!

(Printable Recipe)


8 oz campanelle pasta
5 oz pepperoni slices (I used the mini slices)
8 oz Italian sausage
8 oz mushrooms
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 (26oz) jar spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Preheat broiler.

In a large oven-proof skillet, cook sausage until no longer pink.  Remove sausage from skillet and drain.  Cook mushrooms in sausage drippings until browned.  Add spaghetti sauce and red pepper flakes.  Heat over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.  Stir in cooked pasta, sausage and Parmesan cheese.

Layer mozzarella slices over casserole and top with pepperoni.  Place skillet under broiler until the cheese is brown and bubbly.
