Skillet Spaghetti Pizza
1 pound bulk sausage, cooked and drained
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 cup diced bell pepper
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 pound whole wheat thin spaghetti (break into 2 inch pieces)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
2 cups water
8 ounces shredded mozzarella
diced green onion and fresh basil/oregano minced to sprinkle on top (optional)

You will need to use a saute pan that is about 3 inches high on the sides. After you cook and drain the sausage put it back into the same pan and add the garlic, onion, and bell pepper. Saute 2 or 3 minutes.

Add spaghetti sauce, water, and pasta broken into 2 inch pieces.

Simmer 15 minutes or so over medium heat. You want most of the liquid gone so keep it covered but cracked a little bit. If it is still too watery just take the lid off for the last 5 minutes.

Top with cheese, green onions, and fresh herbs if you are using them. Stick under the broiler for a few minutes to melt and brown the top.

Take out and let cool 10 or 15 minutes before serving
