I have been making this recipe for years after seeing it on a Prego label and it is my most requested week day meal to serve to my family. Everyone loves it. Quick, easy and all ingredients are easy to keep on hand. The only thing I do differently now is to fry the pepperoni in the saucepan before the other ingredients to render and drain off some of the fat. Then I add the green peppers to soften and then the sauce/olives/cheese. Sometimes I throw in some onions or garlic....whatever you like on a pizza would be delicious. We like this version better than the baked in the oven casserole-style pizza pasta recipes I've tried.

I was looking for something that sounded good and went together fairly quickly for a weeknight meal. This was not it. Although it went together fairly quickly the taste was just not there. Maybe it was just the sauce(Prego).

My picky 20 month old ate like she'd never seen food before in her LIFE. The only two changes I made were that I added a can of mushrooms (more to get them out of the pantry than anything else) and used both cheeses as a topping instead of stirring the mozzarella in. This girl right here is not a fan of cheese stuck to her pots and pans.

This was DELICIOUS! I used penne pasta and sauteed the veggies and pepperoni first, just to soften them up a bit. Also, I added some chopped onion, minced garlic and sliced mushrooms. This reminded us of 'pizza pasta'. I could totally see adding any favorite pizza toppings and this turning out great. This will definately be made again and again! Thanks for sharing. :)

Good recipe. Added some fresh garlic and minced onion and italian sausage. Turned out great and the kids gobbled it up!

This was really good. I left out the olives because hubs doesn't like them. I fried the pepperoni first then I sauteed an onion and the peppers together in the pepperoni oil just because we like our veggies soft. Awesome. Easy peasy and tasty too.

Loved it! Was quick and easy, especially for a weeknight. Will make again and again.

Loved this! I added onion, fresh mushrooms and sliced salami with everything else called for. Kids enjoyed it as much as I did!!
