Creamy Pepperoni Pasta

Creamy pepperoni pasta is a fun twist on traditional pasta with red sauce.  The white, creamy sauce has amazing flavor with garlic, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, green peppers, and pepperoni.  Sophisticated enough for mom and dad, but gooey and yummy enough for the kids.  Even better, you can make this as healthy as you want with low fat or fat free milk and cheese and turkey pepperoni!  And trust me, it is better the next day as leftovers!
