Sausage and Pepperoni Baked Penne - Dinner on a Dime

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)
  1. Thoroughly cook sausage.  Drain and add pasta sauce, veggies, and pepperoni.  Simmer on low.
  2. While heating the meat mixture cook pasta as directed on package.  Drain and mix with meat mixture.
  3. 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)
