Ingredients

  • 8 ounce box of short pasta rigatoni, penne or ziti
  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage
  • 1/2 pound of ground beef
  • 8 ounce package of sliced pepperoni
  • 1/2 large white onion chopped
  • 42 ounces of pizza sauce Three 14-ounce jars
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 16 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until almost al dente, but not quite, about 6 or 7 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • While the pasta boils, cook the Italian sausage and ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat until browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  • Layer the pepperoni slices between a couple paper towels. Place the towels on a plate and microwave for 15 seconds to help remove the excess grease from the pepperoni.
  • In a large bowl mix together the pasta, Italian sausage, pepperoni, ground beef, onion, pizza sauce, Italian seasoning, and garlic.
  • Coat the inside of a 5-quart slow cooker with non-stick spray
  • Layer the pasta in the slow cooker, alternating layers with the shredded mozzarella cheese. There should be three layers, ending with the cheese on top.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
  • Serve warm with garlic bread and a salad.

Notes

If this recipe is cooked longer than 4 hours or on HIGH it may burn. Three hours worked perfectly for me.
