Pepperoni Pizza Pasta Recipe | Easy 1 Pot Dinner!

Pepperoni Pizza Pasta recipe

As much as I like to cook my family the healthiest meal possible, sometimes I just have to give them what they want and this Pepperoni Pizza Pasta recipe is one of our “compromise dinners”. My husband and boys really DO like Hamburger Helper (yes – the boxed ones where the sauce is a powder) and I have been trying not to buy that (even though you can usually find coupons to make it cheap!), so we have come up with this version (I’m still working on coming up with a viable version of the cheeseburger macaroni one)

I usually will serve this with a salad so that they can at least get SOME vegetables in them (my wedge salad with homemade blue cheese dressing is their favorite – we just skip the bacon crumbles). I prefer this with less pepperoni (but I am not a big fan of pepperoni anyway), but this is how the rest of my family likes it!

Like my easy beef enchiladas recipe, this pepperoni pizza pasta is also very freezer-friendly.  Simply make a double or triple batch, serve one for dinner tonight and freeze the remaining 2 for another night (just skip the broiling part of the recipe for those 2 until the night you actually cook them)!
