I got the idea of this from Debbie at Mocha Me. Pizza is always a welcomed by the homegirlz and their mom is a pasta lover. So you see you can have the best of both worlds if you plot your strategy. Not only was this a really quick cooking week night meal, it was a real pleaser to the taste buds. This pasta meal has so many variations are only limited by your imagination. just think of what you like on a pizza!
Cook your favorite pasta in salted water and drain. While you're waiting on your water to come to a boil, in a large high sided skillet, over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and saute 4 slices of ham sliced in strips, 1/2 medium onion sliced in strips, 3 or 4 cloves of garlic minced through a garlic press and a couple of handfuls of sliced mushrooms.
Once the mushroom has started to turn golden brown, pour in one 10 ounce charge of pizza sauce and one 8 ounce can of tomato sauce and sliced pepperoni (as much as you want). Stir to combine and lower heat to medium low.
Add 1/2 cup of grated parmesan. Once pasta is cooked and drained. Pour into sauce and toss to thoroughly combine.
Top with shredded mozzarella cheese and sliced black olives and then watch it disappear.
Have a great weekend!
