One 8-ounce box of chickpea pasta

1 pound sweet Italian sausage

½ cup chopped pepperoni

1 cup marinara sauce

One 6-ounce bag shredded Parmesan cheese

One 8-ounce bag shredded mozzarella cheese

2 teaspoons oregano or Italian seasoning

Extra shredded mozzarella and Parmesan cheese for topping

Cook pasta according to directions on the box, and set aside.

In a skillet over medium heat, brown the sausage (casings removed and crumbled) until done, and then drain excess oil.

Heat oven to 375°F.

In a large bowl, mix pasta, sausage, pepperoni, marinara, ½ cup Parmesan, ¾ cup mozzarella and seasoning. Coat a casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray, and spread the mixture evenly in the dish.

Top with the remaining Parmesan and mozzarella, and bake for 30 minutes.
