Ingredients

1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 cups sliced and quartered pepperoni
16 ounces fresh mushrooms, slice
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1 (32 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1 cup rigatoni pasta
1 cup rotini pasta
1 cup macaroni
1 pound ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarell cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


In a large saucepan, combine green pepper, onion, pepperoni (make sure to peel casing off), mushrooms, tomato paste, spaghetti sauce, and garlic; cover and simmer for one hour.


2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
