Manicotti Italian Casserole

As most people know, I am a HUGE pasta fanatic, so I will try most pasta dishes at least once, and if I like it, it makes it to Kitchen Smack. I like this one. I think you will too.

  • 1 lb. Dreamfields carb smart penne pasta
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 lb. Italian sausage
  • 32 oz spaghetti sauce

  • 1/8 tsp. Mrs Dash Onion & Herb Seasoning
  • thinly sliced pepperoni
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain; set aside.
