Why is pepperoni reserved only for pizza? It has so much to offer other dishes.
It’s got a lovely, spicy kick that adds lots of flavor, even when only a small amount is used. And, turkey pepperoni is just about as good as the real thing, so it can really liven up a healthy meal.
I find that pasta is like a backup singer. It supports the star without being in the spotlight, fills in where needed and makes the show complete.
Sometimes, the backup singer becomes the star, or maybe even better. Such as the chili flavored pappardelle I found recently at World Market!
