Create your own pizza-pasta recipe by adding your favorite ingredients, green pepper, onions, zucchini, parmesan cheese etc. ENJOY! It tastes great reheated too.

I got the idea for this dish in a pasta cook book some time ago. I don’t even remember which one because I now know this recipe by heart. I have periodically changed the recipe to suit my family’s taste. The recipe can be easily doubled or tripled for a large gathering.

I made this dish for the Falcon Football team when my son was in high school. Needless to say they all but licked the roaster clean.
