Boiling the Pasta
1. Boil the pasta according to packaging for about 1-2 minutes less than al-dente, then set aside. I recommend boiling pasta in 4 Quarts of Water with 2 Tablespoons Kosher Salt.
Preheating the Oven
1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
Preparing the Sauce
1. In a large pot over medium heat, add in 1 tablespoon of cooking oil.
2. Once oil is hot, add in diced onions, cook for 1 minute.
3. Next, add in diced green bell peppers, sprinkle in a pinch of salt and cook for another 1 minute.
4. Then, add in minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
5. Turn the heat up to medium-high, add in 1 tablespoon of cooking oil, then add in ground beef and sausage.
6. Season with salt, black pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until meat is browned and cooked thoroughly.
7. If you are using a meat protein with a higher fat content, I recommend draining the grease after cooking.
8. Reduce heat to medium, add in marinara sauce, mix in well, bring sauce to a simmer, and simmer for about 3-5 minutes while occasionally stirring.
9. After simmering, reduce heat to low and mix in parmesan cheese.
10. Next, fold in cooked pasta.
Assembling and Baking
1. Transfer to a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish or large baking dish of preference.
2. Add in half of the pasta mixture evenly and top with half of the mozzarella & pepperoni.
3. Then, add the remaining pasta mixture and top with the remaining mozzarella & pepperoni.
4. Bake for 30-35 minutes uncovered. The cheese should appear slightly browned and bubbly.
5. Garnish with Italian parsley and parmesan cheese.
6. Let rest for at least 10 minutes to set and then enjoy.
