This is a quick, easy, and flavorful meal that we like in our household during a busy week. Today it has been really rainy and dreary so I decided to make this to fill our bellies for dinner :)
Sausage and Pepperoni Baked Penne
1 lb Italian Sausage $2.50
4 oz Sliced Pepperoni $1.50
1 Package Penne Pasta 20 cents
1 Jar of Spaghetti Sauce 73 cents
1 Package Italian Blend Cheese $2.00
Optional Veggies (choose anything you like green pepper, onion, zucchini, black olives, etc)
- Thoroughly cook sausage. Drain and add pasta sauce, veggies, and pepperoni. Simmer on low.
- While heating the meat mixture cook pasta as directed on package. Drain and mix with meat mixture.
- Place in a casserole dish and top with cheese. Bake for 20-30 minutes in a 350 degree oven or until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly. Enjoy!
We served ours with a side salad and garlic bread to round off the meal!
Total Cost: $6.93
Cost per Serving: 87 cents (This makes a lot so feel free to scale it down by cutting the pasta, sauce, and cheese in half)
