We love Pizza and Baked Zitti so imagine how yummy this combination recipe must taste. That’s right, it tastes delicious!
The pizza sauce has a little kick that makes it even better.
2 – 15 oz cans tomato sauce
1 – 12 oz can tomato paste
1 tbsp dried oregano
1- 2 tsp fennel seed, crushed
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp chopped basil
1/2 tsp marjoram
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Warm EVOO in sauce pan, stir in spices. Cook and stir 1 minute. Add tomato sauce and paste. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for another minute.
Can be made ahead. It makes enough for 2 zitti recipes. I also freezes well for the next time.
1 lb Italian pasta
1 lb turkey burger
2 oz turkey pepperoni
1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Brown turkey burger, drain and set aside. Cook pasta according to package directions. Combine half of the pizza sauce, browned turkey and cooked pasta together. Layer in the bottom of a
9″ X 13″ baking dish. Top with Cheeses and pepperoni. Bake at 350 degrees until heated through and the cheese is melted.
This is just like any other pizza, top it with your favorite pizza toppings.
We loved our new found creation and I hope you will too.
