Ingredients

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 container (12 oz.) ricotta cheese
1 Jar Spaghetti Sauce (28 oz)
1 Package Sliced Pepperoni (I used Hormel which comes with two "packages" together-only one is needed for this recipe)
1 Cup Mozzarella
1 Box or Bag Pasta (16 oz) ( I use Penne)
Salt, Pepper, Oregano, Garlic and Onion Powder to taste


*I adapted this recipe from a "pepperoni pasta casserole" one from Taste of Home. It is a filling pasta casserole that we always eat as a main dish with some salad and garlic bread!
