This tasted exactly as I expected...like a sausage and pepperoni pizza, with pasta instead of crust. I don't have children, but I would imagine that kids would love this dish, too. It was the ultimate comfort food...and a great twist on baked spaghetti.
12 ounces uncooked spaghetti
1/2 tsp. salt
1 (1-pound) package mild ground pork sausage
2 ounces turkey pepperoni slices (about 30), cut in half
1 (26-ounce) jar tomato and basil pasta sauce
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 (8-ounce) package shredded Italian three-cheese blend
Cook spaghetti with salt according to package directions. Drain well and place in a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish.
Brown and drain sausage. Set aside. Wipe skillet and add pepperoni, cooking over medium-high heat for 4 minutes until slightly crisp.
Top spaghetti in baking dish with sausage. Pour pasta sauce over. Arrange half of pepperoni over sauce. Sprinkle evenly with cheeses. Arrange remaining pepperoni over cheese. Cover with lightly greased aluminum foil.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake 10 more minutes until cheese is melted and starting to brown.
