Pizza Pasta

You will  notice a trend lately in the pasta dishes in our household.  My son is running Cross Country right now and likes pasta the night before a meet.  Pizza Pasta was his personal choice for this week. It was also perfect for my daughter who came home from school saying, "Feed me meat. I need meat." Hopefully she is having a growth spurt.
This is a great dish.  The recipe makes 2  9x13 pans.  So you make two and freeze one for later.  It freezes very well.  One Christmas I made several in the foil pans, froze them and gave them to my relatives as gifts.  They loved it. 
Pizza Pasta
Makes 2 9x13 pans. If you don't want to make 2 half the ingredients.
1 1/2 lb bow tie pasta
1 lb sausage
2-3 jars spaghetti sauce
1 package Canadian Bacon or 1/2 lb cooked and diced ham.
1/4 lb sliced pepperoni
6 Tbs. Parmesan cheese
1 lb grated mozzarella cheese
*optional: onions, mushrooms & olives

1. Cook Pasta until al-dente. Do not overcook. Drain and set aside.
2. Cook and drain sausage (add and cook onions with sausage if desired)
3. Pour a small amount of sauce to lightly coat the bottom of a 9 x13 pan.
Layer ingredients:

1st layer: cover bottom with a layer of pasta, cover with sauce, mozzarella, 1 Tbs. Parmesan and top with sausage (can add sliced olives)



2nd layer: cover 1st layer with pasta and then add the sauce, mozzarella, 1 Tbs. Parmesan and top with ham. (can add sliced mushrooms).







3rd layer: Cover 2nd layer with remaining pasta, cover with sauce, mozzarella, 1 Tbs. parmesan and cover the top with pepperoni.
Bake covered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Take cover off and bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cover and freeze 2nd one.
Unthaw frozen one for 24 hrs in fridge before baking. This freezes very well.
*It took me three jars of spaghetti sauce this time.
