  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 40 slices pepperoni divided
  • 24 ounces pasta sauce
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoon oregano fresh or dried
  • 12 ounces Barilla Pronto Elbows Pasta
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 tablespoons chopped parsley


  • In a large high-lipped stainless steel skillet, cook ground beef with salt, pepper, and garlic powder over medium-high heat until browned, about 3-4 minutes.
  • While beef is cooking, quarter the pepperoni and add 75% of it to the pan with the beef, cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add in pasta sauce, water, and oregano and stir.
  • Add in Barilla Pronto Elbows and stir until well combined, let simmer for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally until pasta has absorbed most of the liquid.
  • Pour pizza sauce over the top of the pasta, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, remaining pepperoni, and parsley.
  • Cover and cook for another 2-3 minutes until cheese has melted, remove from heat and serve hot.



For an added kick, add in a tsp of crushed red pepper.
