Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a versatile recipe! We left out the sausage and just added the pepperoni. My 3-yr old mixed the ingredients and both of my kiddos loved this dish. I think it tastes even better as leftovers. Next time I make it, I will add mushrooms, green peppers and black olives (my favorite pizza toppings).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The kids LOVED it! This was so easy to make and full of flavor. I would recommend not putting the pasta in for as long as the recipe calls for. Mine was a bit mushy but still had great flavor.
