This rich pizza pasta recipe by food blog A Night Owl combines the best aspect of both dishes into a decadent hybrid meal. The dish incorporates the noodles and sauce of a pasta that is then baked with more cheesy toppings just like a pizza.

The dish features large rigatoni pasta noodles that cooked along with marinara tomato sauce topped with Italian sausage and sliced pepperoni. Once the sauce and pasta are mixed together in a deep oven-safe dish, the pasta is topped with shredded mozzarella cheese and sliced pepperonis. The entire pasta is then baked to melt the cheese giving it a gooey pizza topping. The dish is served like pasta in bowls and can be enjoyed with a fork.
