This recipe is from I made 1 pan with tortellini and another pan with gluten free pasta. Very tasty dish.

1 green bell pepper, chopped 1 yellow onion, chopped 2 cups sliced and quartered pepperoni 16 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste 1 (32 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced 1 cup rigatoni pasta 1 cup rotini pasta 1 cup macaroni 1 pound ricotta cheese 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a large saucepan, combine green pepper, onion, pepperoni, mushrooms, tomato paste, spaghetti sauce, and garlic. Cover, and simmer for one hour.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Mix together pasta, ricotta, 1 1/2 cups mozzarella, and Parmesan. In a 9x13 inch baking dish, alternate pasta and cheese mixture and sauce mixture, ending with sauce. Top with remaining mozzarella.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
