Meatsa Pasta

This is a house favorite here! It's easy for me to cook... less than 20 minutes from prep time to eating... and you can play with the ingrediants.

Here's what you need:

1 box penne pasta (of whatever you have)
1 pkg pepperoni
1 pkg smoked sausage or polish sausage
1 jar spaghetti sauce
fresh grated parmesian cheese

Cut up sausage into quarter sized bites (we do smaller for the little ones) and slice pepperoni in half. Put the meat in a skillet and let it sizzle.

While the meat is cooking, boil your water and cook your pasta. Once it's done drain it and add it in with the meat. Cover with spaghetti sauce. Top it with a sprinkle of parmesian and enjoy!

You can play with this one! Add bell peppers and onions to the meat for an added kick. We have also added bacon to it and it was delicious!

Pair with a salad, some bread, and tea and it is a comfort meal in minutes.

NOTE: I substitute turkey sausage, turkey pepperoni, whole wheat pasta, and reduced sugar ragu with very little taste difference!
