- 8 oz Italian sausage, no casings
- 1/2 cup pepperoni, cut into bite size quarters

- 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes with juices
- 2 TB sugar
- 1 tsp onion powder

- 13 oz dry rotini pasta
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

- In a large oven-proof skillet, brown sausage over medium high heat, breaking it up as you brown, 3-5 min. Stir in half of the pepperoni until heated through, 1 min. Add pasta sauce, diced tomato with juices, sugar, onion, powder, garlic powder, oregano, and basil. Add 1 3/4 cups water, stir well, and add salt/pepper to taste.
- Add pasta and stir to combine. Bring to a boil. Immediately cover and reduce to simmer. Simmer until pasta is tender, about 14 minutes. Remove from heat. Top with mozzarella, parmesan, and remaining pepperoni. Place into oven, uncovered, and broil 1-2 min or just until cheese melts and bubbles. Serve immediately. If desired, garnish with chopped parsley.
