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.

Stir in tomato sauce, oregano, basil garlic powder, pasta and 1
1/2 cups water; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to
a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked
through, about 12-14 minutes.

Remove from heat; top with mozzarella and remaining 1/4 cup
pepperoni. Place into oven and cook until melted and golden
brown, about 2 minutes.

Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
