Cook Italian Sausage most way (I like to cook it into bigger chunks-Photo Below). Add in Pepperonis and the rest of Vegis. Cook til most juices are gone. Add in Parmesan Cheese and Seasons, cook few minutes. Then, stir in Sauce and Paste. Simmer for about 15minutes, or so, stirring frequently.
Cook Noodles– Bring to Boil: Water, crushed Cubes, Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add in Noodles. Cook a lil longer than Al Dente*. Drain well.
Butter Flavor Cooking Spray a Baking Dish. Add in Sauce Mix. Add in Cooked/Drained Noodles, TIL DESIRED CONSISTENCY (I actually took out a few noodles)! Mix. Top with Shredded Italian Cheese. Covering with Foil is optional, I didn’t. Bake 25 minutes, in oven preheated to 400.
