Pizza Pasta

This "recipe" was an experiment.  It actually turned out really good.  We all loved it!  Lots of flavor in it. After I made this, we thought of some add ins that would have been great.  I guess that is what ya get, when ya fly by the seat of your pants with a recipe. One thing with cooking, don't be afraid of throwing in a little spice or herb that you like sometimes. Even if the recipe doesn't call for it.  I do that so much and it always seems to make the recipe even better.

Pizza Pasta
1 package {16 oz} shell macaroni ~ uncooked
4 eggs
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 can {26.5 oz} spaghetti sauce ~ flavor of choice
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
sliced pepperonis

Spray a 9x13 baking dish and set aside.  Cook noodles according to directions on package. Drain and set aside. In large mixing bowl, beat eggs lightly.  Add in parmesan cheese and pepper.  Mix well.  Stir in noodles to egg mixture.  Once noodles are well covered with egg mixture, pour into 9x13 dish.  Pour pasta sauce over top of noodles ~ Do Not Mix.  Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over top and add pepperoni slices.  

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and lightly golden.
