Try-It-Tuesday (on Thursday)

We tried a new dish this week. Carter and I saw it on Rachel Ray so we decided to give it a whirl. She calls it Pizzagna (lasagna pizza combo), we just called it Pizza Pasta. It was quick and tasty and the kids liked it, so I call it a success. Not gourmet by any means, but a great one when you need something homemade and fast.

My camera battery was dead so I didn't get a picture, but here's the recipe. I differed it from Rachel Ray's version only because she made her own sauce, I just used Prego.

Pizza Pasta
1 lb pasta (we used capagnelle) cooked
1 cup water from cooked pasta
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup pepperoni, sliced into bite sized pieces
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 jar spaghetti sauce

Cook pasta, save a cup of the starchy water. Mix ricotta, Parmesan, and pepperoni. Add water and mix. Add cooked pasta to cheese mixture. Pour in 9x13 pan. Pour spaghetti sauce on top, cover with mozzarella. Bake @ 350 for 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted.

I have a recipe similar to this. I can't wait to try this version of it. By the way, I would take the shortcut and use Prego too! Have you tried the cannery's spaghetti sauce. It is really good, and fairly cheap. Its what I use right now instead of store bought.
