Ingredients
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • ½ cup diced pepperoni
  • 5 tbsps of diced onions (I personally use less since I am not a huge onion fan)
  • 1 jar chunky tomato pasta sauce
  • 1 box (10.6 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated Parmesan breadsticks with garlic
  • 2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 12x8 (2 qt) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Brown ground beef and drain. Stir in pepperoni, onions, and pasta sauce. Cook until boiling.
  3. Unroll dough into 1 large rectangle. Spread garlic mixture from the box evenly over the dough. Separate dough into 10 breadsticks. Cut each breadstick into 3 crosswise pieces.
  4. Pour ground beef mixture into baking dish. Spread dough pieces evenly over hot ground beef mixture.
  5. Bake 15 - 18 minutes or until topping is golden brown and no longer doughy. Sprinkle with cheese and bake 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

Pour the remaining meat sauce evenly over the shells.
