Pasta with the Works

At first glance, this seems like a very strange recipe. The recipe is designed to be pizza in pasta form. It doesn’t quite accomplish that, but it’s not bad. I wonder if it might be a bigger hit with kids who would be intrigued by the pizza similarity.


1/2 cup thinly sliced pepperoni

1 medium green pepper, diced

2 cups pasta sauce (Traditional Italian or Mushroom Italian)

1/3 cups pitted black olives, cut in half (can also use sliced olives)

4 cups corkscrew-shaped pasta, cooked and drained

4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese (about 1 cup)

grated Parmesan cheese


1. Cook the pepperoni and pepper in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat until pepper is tender crisp, stirring often.

2. Stir the sauce and olives in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes.

3. Stir the pasta and mozzarella cheese in the skillet. Serve with the Parmesan cheese.


I would make this again, but not often. It’s different, breaks up the monotony of weekday meals and is kind of a novelty.
