- 1 jar (14 oz) pizza sauce
- 3 jars of water
- 1 bell pepper, seeded & chopped
- 1 can diced tomatoes, drained
- 1/2 lb Italian Sausage, browned & drained
- 1 cup pepperoni slices, quartered
- 1/2 Tbsp basil
- 1 Tbsp oregano
- 1/2 cup dry pasta
- shredded mozzarella cheese
DirectionsPut the bell pepper, tomatoes, sausage, and pepperoni (and any other toppings you might like) in a 5 to 6 quart or bigger crockpot. Pour the pizza sauce and water. Add the seasonings (I ended up using Pensezy's Pasta Sprinkle mix because I was too lazy to dig through the cabinet to find basil and oregano). Stir it around a little. Turn the crockpot on low and let it cook for at least 6 hours, or all day if you want. Everything is already cooked, you just want to flavors to meld.
About 30 minutes before dinner time, add the dry pasta and turn the crockpot to high. Watch it, my pasta only took about 20 minutes to be soft.
Spoon into bowls and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. We had a nice loaf of Italian bread with it.
