Looks tasty right!?!?

Up close and personal... so so good. It is even toddler approved! 
Who wouldn't love the marriage of spaghetti and pizza!?!?!  :)

  • 16 oz of cooked pasta
  • 1 small tube of sausage (I love Jimmy Dean's natural)
  • 1/4-1/2 pkg. of pepperoni (we use turkey)
  • Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese (we use the the dairy-free Daiya brand)
  • You can add really any topping that love on pizza
  1. Brown the sausage over medium heat in a medium sized skillet.
  2. Cook pasta and chop the veggies while the sausage is browning.
  3. Add the veggies, and pepperoni to the skillet and stir constantly until they are soft.
  4. Scoop the cooked pasta into each individual bowl and cover with the toppings from the skillet.
  5. Add sauce, cheese, salt and pepper to taste.
