I've recently become a lover of the one-pot meal. I know, I've been a parent for almost 4 years and a busy professional for many years before that and I'm only just now going to great lengths to conserve time (and dishes) when it comes to making dinner. It seems the older my kids get the busier my days are and the more often it happens that I see my husband walking through the door after work and I haven't given our dinner any thought at all. Of course there are still many days when I manage to make a nice slow-cooker meal, or roast a chicken with some vegetables, or even make a nice healthy soup. But on the other days? I'm looking for something that's reasonably healthy and well-rounded that I can have on the table in 30 minutes or less to feed my hungry family!

And while the temptation on those crazy days might be to order a pizza for delivery, this One-Pot Pepperoni Mushroom Pizza Pasta is definitely a better choice than that! It's made from ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, it tastes just like your favourite pizza delivery (but it's a whole lot healthier!), and you only have to wash one pot. What's not to love?? And of course, it's made using my friend Ashley's Mix and Match One-Pot Pasta Guide!

So put away the take-out menu and save yourself some money (and time!) with this recipe. It's a family favourite at our house, and my kids go crazy for it. I know yours will too!

You'll need:
450g Rotini pasta
4 cups vegetable broth
1 398ml jar of your favourite pizza sauce (I use a low-sodium, low- fat variety)
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 green bell peppers, cut into chunks
5 mild pepperoni sticks, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Chopped cilantro or parsley for garnish (optional)


To make:

Add the pasta, the broth and about half the pizza sauce to a large skillet or saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil.

Once the liquid begins to boil turn the heat to medium low and let the pasta cook, uncovered, until it's al dente and much of the liquid has been absorbed.

At this point, add the sliced mushrooms, green bell pepper chunks, sliced pepperoni, the shredded cheese, and the remainder of the pizza sauce. Stir everything together well and let the pasta absorb the last little bit of liquid while the peppers and mushrooms soften slightly and the cheese melts into the sauce.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

  2. OMG I am drooling over this. I have a major weakness for pepperoni, and it pairs so well with mushrooms! I'm going to change it up on our next pizza night and make this!
