Ingredients

  • 4 Roma tomatoes sliced
  • ½ Cup Turkey Pepperoni
  • 2 tsp Olive oil
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning divided
  • 1 ½ tsp Garlic salt divided
  • Pepper
  • 8 Oz Whole Wheat elbow macaroni noodles
  • 6 Oz Mozzarella cheese grated (about 2 cups)
  • 2 Oz Parmesan cheese grated (about 2/3 cups, packed)
  • ½ Cup 2% Plain Greek Yogurt

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, toss together the sliced tomato, turkey pepperoni, olive oil, 1 tsp Italian seasoning and ½ tsp Garlic Salt. Spread in one layer on a baking sheet and sprinkle with a pinch of pepper.
  • Bake until the tomatoes begin to soften, about 13-15 minutes. Note that the pepperoni will only take 6-7 mins to crisp up, so check them often and remove from the pan when done, continuing to cook the tomatoes until soft. Set aside
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and cook the pasta according the package directions. Drain the cooked pasta and reserve ½ cup of the cooking water.
  • Transfer the cooked pasta back into the pot and stir in ¼ cup of the Pasta water. Then add in the cheese, a little bit at a time. Stir between each addition until the cheese is fully melted, and then continue to add the cheese.
  • Once the cheese is melted, stir in the Greek yogurt until creamy and well mixed. Stir in the remaining 1 tsp of Garlic salt and Italian seasoning and season with a pinch of pepper. If it’s too thick, add the remaining pasta water.
  • Stir in the cooked tomatoes and pepperoni and DEVOUR.
