Ingredients

  • 1# angel hair pasta, cooked to directions
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4T butter, melted
  • 1C Parmesan cheese
  • 2 oz. pepperoni, sliced
  • 1T olive oil
  • 1C fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2C tomatoes, diced
  • 1C tomato sauce
  • 1/2C onions, diced
  • 1T dried basil
  • 1 tsp each: oregano, parsley, thyme, salt, garlic powder
  • 1 1/2C mozzarella cheese, shredded

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350º.
  2. In a mixing bowl, lightly toss the cooked pasta with the eggs, butter and Parmesan cheese to combine.
  3. Layer half of the mixture evenly in the bottom of a greased 9X13 glass baking dish.
  4. In a frying pan, lightly crisp the pepperoni to get rid of excess grease.
  5. Blot the pepperoni dry after frying, then coarsely chop. Set aside.
  6. In a sauce pot over medium high heat, sauté the onions in the olive oil for two minutes.
  7. Add the mushrooms and sauté until the mushrooms have absorbed all moisture, about another two minutes.
  8. Add the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and all spices to the mushrooms.
  9. Reduce heat to medium low and allow to simmer for three to five minutes.
  10. Ladle the sauce over the pasta in the baking dish, spreading corner to corner.
  11. Sprinkle with the crispy pepperoni and the shredded mozzarella cheese.
  12. Evenly layer the remaining pasta over the top. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
  13. Top with more Parmesan or mozzarella cheese. Allow to rest for five minutes before cutting and serving.

NOTE: Your pie can be altered to ingredients that you enjoy on a pizza. The trick is to NOT overstuff the middle so the ingredients will not bake or over flow the baking dish.
