Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef I use 93/7
  • 1 bag (5 oz) mini pepperoni
  • 1 yellow onion finely chopped
  • 1 green pepper finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 can (14.75 oz beef broth
  • 1 jar (14 oz) pizza sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3 cups small shell pasta
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • In a large skillet pan (with high sides and a lid) add the ground beef, mini pepperoni, green pepper, onion, garlic, and salt. Cook and crumble until the beef is no longer pink (about 5-7 minutes). Drain the extra grease from the skillet.
  • Add the beef broth, pizza sauce, water, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, and basil. Bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, add the dried small shell pasta and bring to another boil. Once boiling, cover the pot with the lid and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 20 minutes.
    * At 20 minutes cook time all the water should be absorbed. If not, let it cook (covered) for a few more minutes.
  • Add shredded cheese and stir it into the past to let it melt together. Serve immediately!

Notes

Serving Size : If you are feeding a family with smaller kids or just tweens, then you can for sure get 8 servings from this recipe. If you are serving all adult sized portions then probably plan on 6 servings. 
Mini Pepperoni : You can also use 1 cup chopped pepperoni in place of the mini pepperoni.
