Print Recipe
  • 16 ounces Italian sausage
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 16-ounce box uncooked pasta
  • 2 15-ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 1 5-ounce package pepperoni
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  1. In a large skillet, cook Italian sausage until browned, or about 3-5 minutes. Drain if desired. Stir in water, pasta, tomato sauce, ½ cup pepperoni, basil, oregano, and garlic powder, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until pasta is cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from heat. Top with remaining pepperoni and mozzarella. Cover immediately with foil until cheese is melted, or about 2 minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley, and serve!
