Pizza in a Pan Recipe
What you need:
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 medium sized onion
1 medium size green bell pepper
1 can tomato sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 jar pizza sauce
2 packages (3.5 oz each) sliced pepperoni
3 cups spiral pasta, cooked and rinsed
2 cups mozzarella cheese
What you’ll do:
Cook the ground beef, pepper and onion over medium heat in a skillet or large pan until meat is cooked through. Drain and return to pan. Keep heat at medium-low. Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste and pizza sauce. Remove the mixture and place in a large bowl. Sprinkle a layer of the meat mixture on the bottom of the pan, keeping heat at medium-low. Layer pasta on top. Layer pepperoni on top of pasta. Sprinkle cheese on top of pepperoni. Repeat layers so that they cover the entire pan, until you end with cheese on top. Put the lid on the pan and let the cheese melt. Leave the pan on medium-low until you’re ready to serve it up. This goes GREAT with garlic bread and a salad for a complete meal!
