Easy Pizza Spaghetti Casserole


12 ounce box of pasta (I use Ronzoni Smart Taste thin spaghetti)
1 pound of mild turkey sausage links (remove casings)
2 ounce pepperoni, sliced (I used the big sandwich pepperoni, cut in quarters)
1 26 ounce jar of tomato basil pasta sauce
1 8 ounce can of Hunts tomato sauce (with basil, garlic, and oregano)
1/4 cup of grated Romano cheese
1 8 ounce package of Italian blended cheese (I used Kraft with a touch of Philadelphia)

Preheat over to 350 degrees.  Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain, and place in 9 x 12 casserole dish sprayed with PAM.  Brown sausage in a large skillet till no longer pink (about 5 minutes).  Remove.  Add pepperoni, and cook till slightly crispy  - a few minutes.  Pour sauces in pan, and add in 1/2 the pepperoni, and all the sausage.  Add in 1 teaspoon of dried basil, and a clove of garlic, pressed.  Simmer a few minutes till blended.  Pour meat sauce mixture over pasta in casserole pan.  Top with cheeses.  Arrange the other 1/2 of the pepperoni on the top.  Cover with foil (you can spray with PAM to keep it from sticking), and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.

Serve with a tossed green salad and garlic bread.
