Let's Make It
Brown sausage in a large skillet. Remove sausage from skillet with a slotted spoon and reserve. Next, saute the prepared mushrooms in the sausage oils left in skillet, saute until just tender.
In the meantime boil your pasta, draining just before completely soft so that it is not too soft when baked in the sauce. While the pasta finishes, combine the sausage, mushrooms and pasta sauce in the skillet and allow to simmer on low.
In a 2 quart casserole dish, coated with a non-stick spray, layer the ingredients. Start with a thin layer of sauce. Continue in the following order: 1/2 pasta, 1/2 sauce, 1/2 pepperoni, 1/2 cheese. Repeat. Cover with foil.
Bake at 350°F for 30 min. Uncover and bake until all cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling. Remove and let stand for 7 to 10 min. Slice and serve.
