Pizza Pasta

PizzaPastaLogo

When my husband I first met, we spent every Tuesday night at the local pizza place with a group of friends.  I got to know him over slices of pizza and pints of beer.  I realized he’s funny, sweet, and maybe worth seeing as more than just a friend.  Pizza is good for getting to know people.

I love pizza in all forms.  This one-skillet Pizza Pasta is all the flavors of pizza in a scoopable form.  What’s not to love?  ͂ Erin

Ingredients:

  • ½ a large red onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 c. jarred pizza sauce
  • 8 oz. dry whole wheat rotini pasta
  • 4 oz. mild turkey breakfast sausage
  • 2 oz. pepperoni, chopped in small pieces
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 c. water
  • Shredded parmesan cheese & crushed red pepper flakes, for serving

Instructions:

Cook and stir breakfast sausage, onion, and bell pepper in a large skillet until sausage is browned.  Drain sausage mixture on a paper towel-lined plate. Carefully wipe out any excess grease from the skillet. Add pizza sauce, water, rotini pasta, pepperoni, sausage mixture, garlic salt, and Italian seasoning to the skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and boil until pasta is tender and sauce is reduced (about 12 minutes). Serve sprinkled with parmesan and red pepper flakes.

WW Freestyle Info.:  This makes 6 servings.  A serving is 1 cup (about 7 ounces by weight).  If you use regular pepperoni, each serving is 9 SmartPoints. If you use turkey pepperoni, each serving is 7 SmartPoints. (If serving with parmesan cheese, be sure to add those points.)
