This is the perfect compromise to pizza and spaghetti. It’s pizza spaghetti! So if you like them separately, you will like them together. This was delicious. It was relatively quick to throw together and reheated well too. I think this would be something the kids would like too (the pepperoni will draw them in!)

12 oz. uncooked spaghetti
1/2 tsp. salt
1 (1 lb.) pkg. milk ground pork sausage
2 oz. turkey pepperoni slices (about 30), cut in half
