Meatless Monday: Pizza Pasta

In an effort to get the grocery bill down and get some vegetables and legumes into my family, I have started doing some Meatless Monday meals. The one I am sharing with you today is great because it tastes like pizza, yet doesn't have any meat in it and is a lot cheaper than ordering pizza! I hope you enjoy it.

Pizza Pasta

You will need:
1 jar of well flavoured pasta sauce (I like the Basil and Tomato flavour)
2 cups macaroni or any other small pasta
1 small onion
1 green pepper
6-10 cherry tomatoes
1 can crushed pineapple (undrained)
1 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
1 cup grated cheese

Bring a pot of salted water to the boil and cook the macaroni for 6-7 minutes.

Meanwhile, chop up your onion, green pepper and tomato.

Mix the cooked pasta with the vegetables, pineapple, pasta sauce and corn, and place in 13″ x 9″ pan (coated with non-stick vegetable spray).

Cover and bake for 20 minutes in a 200 degree oven.

Remove from oven and top with the grated cheese.

Place pan back in oven and cook and additional 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted.
Now serve and eat!

You can easily add your other favourite pizza toppings to this such as mushrooms, or even add some pepperoni or sausage to make it non-vegetarian. Feel free to play around with this recipe!
