ONE POT PIZZA PASTA
Yield: 10 servings
• 1 lb. hot Italian sausage
• 4 garlic cloves, minced
• 3/4 cup mini pepperoni, divided
• 1 (24 oz.) jar Pioneer Woman pasta sauce
• 1 tsp. dried oregano
• 1 tsp. dried basil
• 16 oz. whole wheat pasta
• 3 cups water
• 1 cup shredded part skim mozzarella
• Fresh parsley, for garnish
Preheat oven to broil. Add Italian sausage and garlic to a large oven-safe pan and cook over medium high heat until sausage is browned, about 5 minutes. Add ½ cup pepperoni and stir to combine. Cook until pepperoni is heated through, about 1 minute.
Add pasta sauce, oregano, basil, pasta and water. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat. Simmer until pasta is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and top with mozzarella cheese and remaining ¼ cup pepperoni. Place in oven and bake until cheese is melted and starting to turn golden brown, about 2 minutes. Garnish with parsley if desired and serve immediately.
