Spaghetti Pizza

So, at first glance this recipe might sound slightly strange...But it's actually quite good. I found a similiar recipe on the back of a Hunts spaghetti sauce can, Macaroni Pizza, but my doesn't like macaroni so we changed it a little bit. I made this when my Grandma and Grandpa Park were visiting, and they liked it too :) I served it with garlic knots (see the recipe for these delicious items at the beginning of this blog).

1 package of linguni (my favorite type of pasta!)
1 package of sausage (or ground turkey if you wanted a healtheir rendition)
1 package lean ground beef
25 pepporonis cut into 1/4's
About 2 cups of shredded cheese
1 can of hunts spaghetti sauce (whatever flavor you want)
1 can of tomato sauce
2 tsp. sage
1 tbsp. bbq sauce
2 tsp. italian seasoning
2 tsp. cilantro
Parmesan Cheese (to top)

Cook linguni according to package until tender and drain. Set aside. Cook the sausage and ground beef and drain if there is excess grease. After meat is cooked, combine with spaghetti sauce and tomato sauce and mix. Then put in the spices and bar b que sauce and let simmer. After simmering for a few minutes, put the linguini and the pan and mix around until all of this is well combined. Sprinkle half the cheese and all the pepporonis into the mixture and stir. After letting the cheese melt throughout the dish, put the remainder of the cheese on top and let it melt. When I cooked it on the stove, it didn't completely melt so i stuck it in the oven for about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve!
