Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to broil.
Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high
heat. Add Italian sausage and cook until browned, about 3-5
minutes, making sure to crumble the sausage as it cooks;
drain excess fat. Stir in 1/4 cup pepperoni until heated
through, about 1 minute.

a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked
through, about 12-14 minutes.

pepperoni. Place into oven and cook until melted and golden
brown, about 2 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
