Easy Pizza Pasta Recipe (with coupon links)

So, has a new coupon posted for Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta. If you are lucky, Publix will include this when they put Ronzoni on BOGO next time... if not, hopefully you'll catch it on sale somewhere soon. If you can catch it on a good sale or BOGO, you should be able to get 2 boxes for close to free with this coupon (they usually run around $1.50/box).

This is a recipe that I created years ago after trying the pizza pasta at American Cafe (no longer around). I decided I could recreate it. This is so easy and you can really make it your own.

Pizza Pasta
1lb chicken (chopped and cooked)
1 green pepper (diced)
1 small onion (diced)
1 box penne pasta
---Ronzoni Smart Taste
---Muellers pasta
1 jar spaghetti sauce
--- Muir Glen
1 package pepperoni
---Armour pepperoni
2 cups shredded mozzarella or Italian blend cheese
---Kraft shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 400.  Cook pasta according to box.  While pasta is cooking, cook chicken. Add onion  & green pepper and saute.  Once pasta is cooked and drained, mix in chicken/veggie mixture,  spaghetti sauce and half the package of pepperoni.  Pour into casserole dish.  Top with remaining pepperoni and cheese and bake for 20 minutes (until cheese is just starting to brown).  Let stand for 5 minutes and serve.

You can also do this recipe with Italian sausage instead of chicken, if you prefer, or omit the veggies, add mushrooms or any thing else you like on your pizza.
