Pepperoni Spaghetti Pie is one of those simple meals that everyone will love. Really what could be bad about pasta, cheese, and pepperoni?!
This is creamy, delicious, and full of flavor. My kids loved it. It was the flavors of pizza, but in a casserole type dish.
Add some salad or vegetables on the side and you have an easy dinner on the table in no time.

Lynn, this sounds awesome. I am featuring it on my blog next Wednesday Feb. 20th (I host a blog hop every Wednesday and feature 3-5 really great posts.)
have you ever subbed anything else for the heavy cream? this would be a great go to recipe except we don’t usually have that in the house…i can’t wait to try this!
I have not. The cream makes it better, creamier and richer, but I do think you could use 1/2 and 1/2 or even milk. I would cut back the amount though if I used milk because it is not as thick as cream. You could always add a little extra cheese to make up for the lack of creaminess the cream gives it if you use milk. I would love to hear how it turns out if you make it without the cream.
i will let you know. i am going to add it to my march meals to make and will try it in the next couple of weeks 🙂
